im guessing your driving with traction controle

the car is going to one side the engine is making slight adjustments to keep the power to both wheels so they wont spin
if ive helped you in anyway vote for carlow to be the first tezzaworld drinking session

traction control is off. my garage said it could be the tyres. i changed the wheels this evening so ill see how it goes. dont think its the shocks. when i hit a dip in the road the back of the car was kicking to the right.

When I got my wheels aligned they managed to leave the upper wishbone lose (forget which side) and the back of the car was trying to steer itself. Made for some hairy driving. Worth a look.

What state are your tyres in, i know its an obvious one but you'd be surprised...

Also is the car lowered, if it is and its really low, like mine your standard camber kit won't compensate for this lowering and the wheels will angle out not great for bumpy roads cos if you lose grip on one side because of the camber the wheel tends to slip causing the back end to kick out a bit, dosen't help if your tyres are gettin to the end either

I have a similar problem but not as bad as what your describing. The back end tends to wander around a bit but mostly on very bumpy roads. Mine is caused by too much rear camber.
