problem

Ok so this has been going on for quite some time. When Im driving down the road and punch the gas, this is gonna sound kinda wierd, but it feels like my car is doing the wave. Im not sure really how to describe it but it feels as if my rear end was going to fall out. Its even worse when im in high rpm then switch gears. I had a local shop put it on the lift to see if anything visibal was wrong, but nothing. Like I said its hard to describe, it just feels like my suspension is like jello...anybody have a clue? thanks

Re: problem

check your shocks and then your connecting rod bushings for the rear.

Re: problem

the rear end wiggles some~ but shouldnt to bad (all rubber bushings) you can check your upper and lower control arms to make sure they are bolted on good, then wiggle your tires up and down and to the side (with the car jaked up) and make sure its all good but you dont have a ball join back there~ just to make sure your axle bearings are not hosed up at the wheel.

Re: problem

How many miles does it have? I'd check the bushings like Spectorv suggested. Maybe check out your tires for broken belts. My friend has a 96 Cobra that does a similar thing when he hits a bump. We have to replace his quad shocks, we are going to do a control arm swap at the same time.
