260e Pushes to Right on Hwy

Something seems screwy with my suspension. I've recently aligned my front end and the car seems to hold the road well at constant hwy speed. However, when I accelerate quickly, say at 55mph to 70mph, the car lurches to the right. Then, when I leftoff the pedal, the car lurches, somewhat less violently, back to the left.

When I first purchased the car, I replaced most of the rear end suspension parts. And within the last 2 years I've had the entire front end replaced.

Any thoughts?
