rear end

The rear end feels like it moves when I accelerate from 1st gear. It feels like it raises and kind of shifts to the side. I had it inspected and all they found was a bad tie rod and a transmission mount so I got those changed out. But I'm not sure If this is normal. Some guy said that its because of the torque and that a traction bar would fix the problem.

Anyone?

If its shifting to the right then your friend is right. Torque shifts to the right rear.

Some poly bushing and oversized sway bars will also help stiffen up the rear end.

Re: rear end

jack up the car on jack stands on the frame so the rear hangs down, inspect the bushings etc see if any are messed up. It should not be like that, the car doesnt produce enough hp/tq to cause damage to those components but the bushings can wear/rot and cause issues.
