Ghost steering

Excuse me if there is a thread that has addressed this topic but as far as I researched I couldn't find it.

Onward to the problem, with all the 3 series I've owned all e46 sedan and coupe they were all lowered and for some reason depending on the road the car steers itself. It's not with tremendous force but it's a nuisance. You have to quickly correct it or you'll be all over. Now since I have put my PSS's on they are at the lowest level and I have Miro 111 18x8.5 et35 in the front the problem is more pronounced where you have to snatch the wheel at sometimes. Makes you feel as if your all over the road fighting the car. What could contribute to this? I have stock strut mounts on maybe camber plates are needed? The car has had a full four wheel alignment still same problem. Any thoughts?

Search "tramlining," it seems to be inherent to the e46 chassis.
