car spins outa control on left turns..Wth?!

So Friday night ground was wet and I made a left turn..pretty low mph..and my car dos a complete 360 across two lanes and I wound up in a diner parking lot. Today I made a left turn and my car shook a bit. Could this be my suspension?

If you're tires are worn and the roads are wet you will most likely have no traction

Bald tires and an open differential do that. Only the right wheel spins so a posi would greatly help.
It spins both wheels so you won't have that problem.

If you've never been in physics, it's not in planted in your brain, so it's easy to forget, I just graduated and I took physics last year, my junior year, and I still remember that kind of junk

Just one of those stupid classes you have to take for engineering

Yeah it's not mechanical. It's your open differential. Get a t-loc or an 8.8 rear
