Q5 steering issue

Ive had this since I got the car a couple of month ago. However its now getting very annoying and if im not paying attention it can be unsafe.

whenever I go over bumps , potholes, dips in the road etc anything un even. the steering wheel kind of pulls (turns itself) to a side. If you drive with just one hand on the wheel at the top going over a few bumps youre hand will be moving side to side.

any thoughts or experience ?

I’m not a mechanic so take these as guesses. Simple one is check your tyre pressures are even, next level maybe tracking is off, though that would impact steering all the time, not just over bumps...

On second thoughts just ignore me and hope an expert responds!

I finally managed to get it in the air for a look and the only problem I could find was the control arm bushings was buggerd. The rubber had split. Getting them changed on Saturday so will see how it goes
