Rear sways when hitting bumps
Posted 01 March 2004 - 09:12 AM
I got the car up on ramps and everything seems to be in order, then of course I am used to working on Jeeps. The swaybar is attached and seems tight.
I do have the air ride suspention (I think) I have a hieght button on the dash that does squat. I checked the tire pressure (one was at 60psi) and got them all to 32 PSI.
I am lost with this problem and I hoping I can fix it.

You drive over an up-and-down bump, and it causes the rear of the car to:
1. Sway side-to-side?
2. Perform of a rocking motion?

I hope that helps.

How do I check the bushings and struts to see if they need replaced?

BMXPunk's test is the best method to test. I put in KYB GR-2's. Not the most high performance biut great struts for the price.

Is the toe-in adjustable on these cars?

ive been watching this thread as my car has the same problem, this weekend im going to be replacing the intake manifold gaskets and am planning a thourough inspection of the rear bushings....i just replace the old struts with KYB GR-2's last summer, so im thinking its not the struts....
as far as the rust issue, mine has NO rust, and its doing this......maybe not important but ill post back the results...maybe some pics....this is driving me nuts also ...literally
