Here are a few common causes for the problems you mentioned. Hope this helps.

1.The car could have a vacuum leak most likely it's the intake gaskets, which go for around $90.ea and you need two of 'em.

2.Sounds like the lower controll arms are about shot. You have two options here, either steal or aluminum.

3.The rear wheels may have been adjusted for Toe-out which should be correctable although I don't have experience this adjustment.
