Hi all,

Got a bit of a worrying issue when travelling at the national speed limit (ish) :confused

Well when around the 70 mark the car sways ever so slightly and find myself having to counteract the swaying slightly with the steering wheel, i know my n/s rear shock needs replacing as its leaking but wouldn't expect this much sway from just that. :(

Has anyone else had this problem and where abouts should i start looking?

Also my rear anti-roll bar links need replacing but still wouldn't expect sway to this extent from that

Any help would be awesome

Thanks in advance

i think you answered you own question replace the drop links and that shock and watch the car perform as it should

fair do's, wouldn't have expected that amount of swaying from that, considering i have to mildly counteract it with the steering wheel :S

Had a similar problem on my old 325 and found the front joints and tracking needed attention, pretty simple fix and my car ran fine after.
(mind you while I was have those sorted I also took the opportunity to have new shocks/springs added but there wasn't anything wrong with the old ones so I doubt they had anything to do with the problem)

Hope that helps mate. :thumbsup
