Is it actually correcting it self as the hydraulic arms drop? This points to a leak in the cylinder or lift valve. I take it you are using only the position lever and not the draft lever? Using the draft lever will make the hydraulics behave out of ordinary as the tractor will be sensing.

Sorry ment to say,no position lever only works enough to release pickup hitch other than that it has no resistance.
