Default all over the road at 60

I don't know if anybody else is having this problem or had it but I need some help with it because I have to fix it myself. When I'm driving and get up to about 60 miles an hour my car starts bouncing and it starts going all over the road like the front end will start bouncing it feels like it's coming off the ground and then it feels like the backend is about to slide out from behind me and it feels like the top of the car and the wheels aren't even connected and it only does it at 60 miles an hour and I can't figure out what it is does anybody have any ideas?

Do you feel it in the steering wheel? Sounds like you might have a faulty drive axle. Or, it could be bad lower control arms, tie rod ends, struts, or even ball joints. How many miles are on yours and have you had ANY work done on it recently? Too many variables here to pinpoint what's going on. I'd suggest taking it to a REPUTABLE shop and have the front suspension inspected.

Sounds like a bad tire to me...check for a broken belt, out of balance or bent rim.

Sounds like bad shocks. Could be either end or both. You can check this by pushing down on each corner and try to get it to bounce. If it does you know it's bad. Then check the tie rods and ball joints. Also might rear stabilizer bars in the back. If any shake there bad.
