Default Car feeling unstable at highway speeds?

Hi, my99 S80 T6has felt "fishy" at highway speeds.I believe this occurred after I hit a largepothole, also causing me to having to replace my two tires on the right hand side. Anyway, I took the car toa local place, twice, but they didn't find anything wrong. Then I took it tothe Volvo dealership, they found a few things - includingfront ball joint and front control arm bushing.These were replaced, but still issues with stability on highways.Volvo dealership took a second look at the car - then found that rear control arm bushings needed replacement as well (Rear RightHand side). Problem is - I can't afford it; it is a work intensive procedure so it is fairly costly. Therefore - anyone who has done this themselves that can give some advice? I included a couple of pictures that show the two bushings as well.
