Porsche Crest Steering Wheels Front End "loose" sensation

My 1983 930 (Euro Version) car presents a very dangerous problem. Under heavy acceleration, the front end seems to feel "loose" on the steering wheel. I thought that this might be due to the car initial suspension movement but the situation however happens when speed is increased. It can be noticed as low as 60 mph but can be noticed at lower speed with increased acceleration. It happens even in straight movement. Here i detail what I have done in order to fix this:

1) All Torsion Bars were replaced by new Elephant Racing Bars
2) New shocks replaced on the front (Bilsteins). Rear ones seems to be OK
3) Replaced a torn front ball joint
4) Rear spring plate bushings replaced
5) Ride Height has been changed in several set ups (low - euro specs; higher - us specs)
6) New Tires....different pressures....always on 17' rims

I cant enjoy my car FULLY under this conditions....please help me by giving me some direction!!!

Thanks
