Default Rebuild Done. TRANS FIXED!!!

I got my transmission rebuilt last week and did all of the labor accept for the rebuild. Only took me 6 hours to get it back in!!! (Pretty good for a first timer I hear!) The rebuild costed me 1155 plus fluids and misc. stuff. I now am having some complications with my steering...

When I hit bumps on the road the steering wheel will jerk one way or the other and it feels like the front tires are fighting each other. I don't understand why it did this when I put it back together. I didn't touch the tie rods or anything related to the steering. All of that stayed attached to the subframe and I didn't adjust anything.

I was thinking I might possibly need an alignment but I don't know how any of that stuff got knocked out of whack... Any suggestions?????????????

What parts of the suspension system did you drop? And you have to have removed half the subframe... Even in that case you would want to have the alignment reset as you have disturbed the position of the subframe... Doesn't seem like much, but it can make a difference

How does the trans work?

I did a little bit of my own alignment job the other day and it definetly seemed to help. I still am going to get it in and done professionally.

Secondly I am not sure what to say about the transmission. I am nearing the end of the 2 week break in period of soft/mild driving. But I have noticed something that has me worried...
When I am at highway speeds. (Anywhere between 55 and 70) and I go to make a pass the car seems to surge and I don't move as fast as I should be. I would think that the transmission place would have surely replaced my 3 and or 4 gear clutches/mechanisms. But the car was doing this before it went out the first time.

I thought it might be connected with boost issues but my boost gauge winds out and stays pretty steady when this surging occurs.
