his problem happens while braking. i had a similar situation with a jetta once. the pads were really low and the rotors were glazed pretty bad. i replaced them, and the problem was still there. upon further inspection, one bolt was missing from the subframe and the floor of the car was cracked. i could put a prybar on the subframe and move it a good 4 inches from side to side. we had an inspector come in and the car was deemed totalled. i'm, not saying that this is what your problem is, but you really narrowed things down after you said you replaced the brakes

dont assume its tie rods. get the car up in the air and shake the front wheels left to right. if theres play, you have a tie rod issue.
