WTF Felt Like I Was Losing A Tire....HELP!

I dunno WTF happened with my car 2night but it was the weirdest thing Iv ever experienced driving

I was coming off a traffic circle and I didnt even stomp on it and just accelled normally and suddenly the car started rolling side to side and the rear end felt like it was going left while the car wanted to go right.....confusing i know. Then I checked the lugs, and suspension and everything seemed fine.....I ran the car up to 120 and it felt fine....

The car is lowered with FRPP P springs and is on MT ET Drag Radial pros and skinnies. I dunno if it was cause the tires were cold or what...anyone have any ideas??

Something might be wrong with the car so you take it to 120 to be sure? Do you have a mullet? Lol, I'm just bustin your balls. Is it a possibility that one of your springs were not seated properly? Or maybe there was something on the road, oil or grease?

LOL after doing it i was like hmmmmmmmm that was stupid haha. I had driven about 20 miles feeling for something and didnt feel anything. The springs have been on the car for at least 3k now and raced on and never felt anything like that. I dunno if one coulda turned or something. I mean maybe it coulda turned from weight transfer going around the circle??? I was thinkin oil or grease but i went back to the same circle, took it around, and it didnt do it the 2nd time....im stumped

nope didnt feel like wheel hop. It legit felt like there was one person on each side of the rear of my car pushing it side to side haha.

I dont have a panhard bar so maybe the rear shifted???

I'm guessing had to do with the tires being cold or the setup. I've bolted up a buddy's ET streets before and the car felt real loose.

No panhard bar? Are you running a watts link or something?

Sounds to me like you DRs were either rock solid because of cold temp or you hit water/oil.


Drifting without anticipating it must have been interesting.

Did you need a change of shorts?

Is your axel off centered at all? I've got a 2.25 drop and without the adjustable pan hard bar may rear axel had kicked over to the driver side about 1 inch.

i've had a wheel fly off of my old stang before...for two weeks the car felt like the wind was blowing hard when i'd get it up to speed...i thought the lugs were tight too...turned out the wheel was rounding out where the studs go through and finally one day it gets that shifting feeling...i tug to the right a little..and my driver rear wheel and tire passes me as im going 55.

i'd pull the wheels off and double check everything. i now check my lugs every few weeks lol and my issue happened a year ago...it's just something that once it happens sticks in the back of your head

So happy to see some one else post about this problem. This happened to me as well on my way back to work. It was about 60 degrees out and dry. I have factory 3.73 gears and brembo pack tires. I also have a FRPP drop but im running K springs with a adjustable pan head bar and LCA... Do you think its the rear axle being off centered? I feel like my rear end under power is slipping out and not holding traction as well as it did 2k miles ago.. Please HELP!!!

You should still have the stock nonadjustable panhard rod though. What you're talking about is getting an adjustable panhard rod when you drop the car more than about 1".

That was my first thought, especially being cold. Maybe caught a patch of black ice.

I know when I'm low on fuel the Advancetrac doesn't allow the car to accelerate quickly.

MT ET DR's are bias ply tires right? Bias ply tires by nature have a lot more sway in the sidewalls and will give a flimsy feeling and could be the cause of what you felt.

What is the tire size?

Pan head bars?

Why is the adjustable bar better when you lower your stang?

Because when you lower your mustang, the rear axle will shift to the left. The adjustable panhard rod will be able to move it back to center.
