Steering Jitters whenever I go over a Bump...

My 92' 325i e36 had newer front struts, strut bearings, and front control arms and they were all replaced in 2012. I only had put about 1K miles since the replacements. I notices it was jitters a bit even after I had it replaced. The car has been parked for all 6 months during the winter months. The e36 is back on the road again and now the jitters is notice even more... It's very sensitive to bumps, even small bumps. However, it loves corners and come in and out of the corners (flat surface) without any issues. The only thing that I did not have it done, was the alignment. I am going to get it done soon... I just don't think the alignment has such an impact or major impact like it has now on the steering jitters.

The is two other components that I did not replaced at the time, sway bar bushings and the Tie-rod ends.

The car does drive very straight!! The steering jitters whenever I go over a bump regardless big or small.

What other parts do I need to do so that I can have that tight feel on the steering again??

Please let me know, please...
