Steering Wheel Vibrations - 2000 Mercury Marquis LS

I recently purchased a used 2000 Mercury Marquis LS. The car needed new tires and some front end work plus a wheel alignment.

Compared to my 2009 Toyota Camry, every time this car hits a bump or lump on the highway, I feel the vibration transmitted through the steering wheel.

Is this typical of the steering and/or suspension of this year model car, a 2000?

The mechanic at the dealership told me that aside from what he repaired, everything is tight and the shocks are good.

Anyone have similar experiences?

That's not normal. Maybe the steering coupling. Was it at a Ford dealership?

This is exactly what my 2003 is doing. It is almost like the steering wheel has no damper between it and the bumps in the road. Very annoying.
The steering wheel will jerk at every big bump and then return to normal very quickly. everything under the car is tight and I just had an alignment and new tires.
If you get some ideas/fixed, please post as I am curious...
