Default is this normal?

So sometimes as I do a quick lane change on the highway at about 75-80mph, as soon as I fully get in the lane, I can feel the steering wheel pull left and right by itself, if I let it go and continue straight I can see it move half an inch right and left on its own? Like small tugs..

It might be from the pitch of the road.

If it were the pitch of the road it would probably just pull left or right. I think what he is trying to say is pulling back and fourth not just one direction.

Depending on the crown in the road it can do that. Been there done that many times. Also alignment and everything was perfect on the car.
