I see an answer to a question similar to mine but the thing is I need to know an almost exact answer. I put two new sway bar in-links just two months for the front.

Do you feel it in the steering wheel or do you just feel it as if the whole car seems to just jump?

I feel it in my front tires. when I reverse to the left or right it is worse. It feels like my front is going to break.

That sounds like the control arms are loose. Have you noticed unusual front tire wear like a scuffing on the edges of the tires?
