Try turning on the radio while driving with the A/C turned on.  You may 
hear a crackle/snap/pop at the same time the car lurches, indicating the 
problem is a voltage jolt produced by the A/C clutch.  It's giving your car 
an electroshock treatment every time it lurches if that's the case.

This matter is covered on Scott Mockry's wonderful website 
at:  http://www.teleport.com/~scottmo/index.html   You specifically want to 
look at the "click or pop" repair on Scott's site
