It's a possibility but it's really hard to say having never driven it myself. But either way those tires are a safety hazard

Yeah, I have them replaced before I left yesterday. Haven't drove yet. Hopefully that fixes it.

It really is amazing how bad or good some tires can be. I just got rid of the 555R tires I had on my 98 and replaced them with a good set of BFGs and its like driving a completely different car.

Update, driving home from work and it feels like my rear is wagging it's tail like a dog. Not bad but it happens every 5 seconds or so. Front feels fine now.

Something loose back there or shot bushings or rear not properly aligned etc... Gotta get it up on a lift and really check it out. Or pull it, do a FTBR kit, replace any wear items and pop it back into place. Will feel like a brand new car.

Figure out what was wrong with it! Jacked up the rear and wiggle both rear tires. Driver rear is tight as it can get. No play. Passenger rear I can wiggle it to hell. So I looked up on svt forum and they say it's the axle nut? Should be torque to 140 pounds I believe.

Lol I forgot about those. You have to tighten those things up regularly. Read up on it.
