Strange front end problem

99 f350 that I have had since new. This morning whan I was driving to work I crossed a rairoad crossing and immediately after, the steering went haywire. By haywire i mean it was pulling fairly hard to the right but in an oscilating manner. Weird thing is I've noticed once and a while when I make a left turn and after straighening the wheels it has a tendancy to feel strange but almost immediately goes away and will not do it again for days or weeks sometimes. So thats what I thought was going on this morning but it didn't go away, all the way to town going 55 it was like every 2 seconds someone was grabbing the wheel and just jerking it to the right. So i'm thinking man gotta call ford and get the old girl checked out. Just about the time I got to town about 10 miles hit another RR crossing and problem was gone. I've had the ball joints go bad, had warped rotors, front wheel bearings have gone out but i've never felt anything like this, especially that comes and goes away after hitting a bump!

Any thoughts?
