Maybe describe a bit more? Does it pull to one side (which side)? Momentarily, then it's straight again? or do you have to steer it back on course?

Or is it more a forward/backward jerk?

sometimes it pulls to the right, sometimes to the left, but the power steering always brings it back to center, and yes its s backward forward jerk in the steering wheel

For starters, take a look at your engine/tranny mounts. With someone in the car, hood up, engine running, have the person shift from P to R to D and while you stand at the side to see if the engine rocks excessively. In D and with the brakes firmly on, give it a little gas and see what happens to the engine as well.

EDIT: or if you have the manual, of course, go from neutral to 1st to reverse and gingerly let out the clutch...

are they good? did it do this before you did the engine/tranny mounts?

did it do it before you replaces the brakes at all?
