I would look at the actual alignment specs to which the car was done -
just so you know - they should have given them to you.  Maybe check tire
pressures?  Pay real close attention for any looseness in the front
suspension - maybe a control arm is shot also, or something did not get

The roads here in Eastern Washington are definately not in the best
shape with people running studs for 4-6 months a year.
I just dont remember the steering being so touchy over the rough roads,
I have to hold the steering wheel firmly to stay going straight - and
then on the smooth roads it runs straight and easy...
