The sway bars was my problem, would it act like you hit a patch of ice? they have lower and upper sway bars! mine were the lower!

I had the samething, very dangerous and scary when it occurs, lots of opinions but it turns out it will be your rear bushings.

I had the same exact problem with my 97 Pathfinder. Here are a couple of ideas:
At first, I thought it might be the suspension links. There is a lot on the web about the problem. Here is a good website that describes it:
...and Nissan published a service bulletin about it. Search the web for Service Bulletin_NTB98001.
HOWEVER, when I took my Pathfinder to the shop, they took a look at the suspension links and said they were fine. It turned out my TIRES were causing the problem! The rear tires looked fine, and were maybe 5 years old. But the mechanic said they were warped (he was a lot more technical ... I'm paraphrasing). He put on two new tires in the rear, and the problem went away!
Hope this helps.
