Probably the bushings in the control arms have failed... They always seem to shift to the right.
Without knowing the year of your car, I would say yes, if you have a warranty, this should be covered.

Panhard bar looks bent in the photos. That would shift the axle to the right as it attaches to the left side of the axle and on the right side is attached to the panhard bar support brace (frame).

Impact damage? Looks like other parts are hanging down also in the third picture.

Those have a panhard bar so there may be something out of whack with it or the mounting brackets.
Don't worry Ponyboarder, they'll get you all fixed up at the dealership.

ok good and no there was no collision. I was on a 30 mile per hour s curve and hit a bump and my rear end just gave out this time and swung.

Ive been over it several times so I dont know.

Also seem to hear a slight whining noise while i drive from the right rear tire.

Its a 2013 with 21k miles on it, so should be ok. I baby this thing so much, it gets waxed two to three times a week

I go to shows with my grandpa in his lightening alot so Im not so much a speeder but a cruiser

Haha
I don't see any evidence of hitting anything in the pics.
This is one of the best parts of owning a new car... Just take it in and say "Fix it!"

Well i took it in saturday to make an appointment and they said that warranty probably wont cover it. Was just one of the guys that works at the ford here in Springfield (IL)

Honestly does anyone know what can be done to fix it if they say they wont?

It looks like the connections to the sway bar are off of their original position, and the panhard bar was like that when I got the car.

What is out of whack and what isnt?

Warranty should cover that. If they say it doesn't they are full of sh*t.

That will be covered.
Talk to an actual service writer on Monday. They get the "Yahoo's" to cover on Saturdays.
And while you're at it, see if they'll throw some paint on that rusty-*** rear axle, AND, they can replace that half worn through right rear shock as well.

It probably has something to do with the panhard bar setup that they used on those cars. That's what keeps the rear axle centered.

Dude, you must have nailed something hard because that Panhard bar is ****ed. Furthermore that metal and plastic line are hanging down when they should be pinned to the lower portion of the car. Did you get this new? If so, then someone must have taken it on a really hard test drive.

Its hard to tell from the angles, can we get another picture straight on of the whole panhard bar setup?

Panhard Bar for 2005 2014 Mustangs | eBay

Should I just buy this and do the install myself?

If that bar got bent during normal driving, yes, I recommend getting a sturdier aftermarket setup.

Wow that's crazy the amount of rust underneath that chassis for that year of car. What the heck did you do to bend that pan hard bar? Your rear shocks
are rubbing on something and your end link bushings have worn bare spots on your rear sway bar. Have you been Auto Crossing?

Honestly no, I baby this car. Worst thing that ever happened was a curb shot leaving a bank.

When i got it with 1700 miles, it had that rust and it just seems to be falling apart on me ha.

I love the stang but man its expensive.

Getting a new panhard tomorrow probably.

I could see this not being covered on the powertrain warranty, but is your bumper to bumper warranty up already?

Did you get the car from the dealership? If you did, you're covered under warranty. It almost appears like there was a curb impact from the side of the car. Are the back wheels both OE?

Yeah bumper to bumper is still there, why do you ask?

And as far as first owner? I dont know. This car went to SEVERAL different dealerships before ending up in chicago where I got it, but it looks like it never had an owner. 1700 miles and no owner, just dealerships. Sounds like it was a lemon from the factory that was moved around, but I didn't think that when I got it. Carfax was the most ominous one I ever read.

If anyone wants to look it up be my guest... seriously... I dont understand it.

Because I think bumper to bumper should cover anything on the car that wasn't obviously abused or damaged. That's why it's called bumper to bumper. I would think they should at least fix you up under that warranty for free.

If you purchased your car from the dealership it has a warranty and therefore they should fix it. You were not involved in an accident so the parts failed under normal driving and should be replaced under warranty. Be persistent with the dealership and don't take no for an answer.

If the car is a lemon, which it appears to be, you can go through the lemon law process and Ford may have to buy it back.

The Ford warranty should still be in place, dealership warranty not necessary.

You really need to see the records. Not all CarFax entries are bad. Some are just for owner changes and such.

That's bad! I would suspect that the car had side impact damage at the rear wheel.

Find out the facts and then proceed accordingly. You'll come out fine!
