OP stated that it still does it with the car coasting in neutral. Can't be the TC in this case. As another poster has pointed out, this has to be a rotational issue most likely with the wheels, tires...

Yes, the MRC. It's standard on 2019's but not before. It'll cost you 350 bucks from the dealer but it's worth it because it significantly improves the ride.
