[Vwdiesel] Being hit by "Phantom Winds"

Sorry, I really couldn't think of a good way to
subject this...

This morning while driving home from church, I
experienced the car suddenly shifting to the side.  It
feels exactly like being out on the highway and being
hit by a strong gust of side wind.  

It isn't like I am being thrown into the other lane,
but it is most definately noticeable.

It happens from both ways, doesn't just get "pushed"
on one side.

I put it up on a lift and checked out the front end. 
I cannot find anything loose or wrong looking.  

The tie rods and ends are practically brand new.  

Any ideas on what could be going on?
