Default Body wobbling at low speeds

I got my suspension done 4 days back. Don't know what kind of a job he has done. When i go over a bump at low speeds i feel the back of my car sway from left to right. I checked out with a tyre guy and he said there might be a wheel alighnment problem but if there is an alignment problem then only my steering wheel should wobble right and not my car? What do you guys think will be the problem?

if u have done some suspension work it could be some wrong setup

but i have had the same problem as mentioned by you and this was a Tyre Out of shape on the Right Rear. the swaying was very evident at speeds between 3 to 10kmph and would then fade out. Once the speed reached around 100+ there would be a lot of vibrations in steering.

replaced both rear tyres, balanced and aligned all fine.

the tyre guy (bahrain) just moved his hand over the exterior and said its a tyre out of shape.
