Sounds plausible. Or you could have one or more broken leaves, although 
this should manifest itself in assymetrical cornering behavior. Or, in 
plain language, it steers differently in righthand turns than in lefthand 

Also, check the axle u-bolts. In fact, consider every nut and bolt 
underneath the car suspect until you verify its tightness. They have an 
amazing propensity for loosening themselves over time.
