It sounds like your rear top mount is shot. I suspect the shock has pushed through the rubber bush to bring you that lovely rear end steering effect.

I would drive the car carefully if this is the case, having to do something in the middle of a corner at speed could well end up with a visit into the scenery.


My passeger rear sus is saging almost a full inch.. I think the shock mount is shot, but this should not cause the saging problem I am having. has anybody experenced this problem? I am planing on replacing the shock mounts next weekend so that would be the perfect time to replace other parts also! The springs are H&R race, the shocks are bielstein and are about 2.5 years old. I have had this problem for about 6 months.. it is getting worse every day. I get a horrible rear end sway when pushing the car around corners.. any ideas are AWSOME!! please help!
