Hi all, today my car has been acting rather strangely, at speeds of around 60 mph my car starts swaying from left to right on the back end, its especially worse when i go over bumps feels like im going to loose control of it, im not mechanically minded so could anyone please tell me what to check ? Thanks in advance Jamie

sounds like rear trailing arm bushes which are a common problem,try and go for polys as there easier to fit saving labour time as you dont need a special tool to install them.plus they will last longer than standard bushes...the knocking could be re-lated to that or even anti-roll bar bushes or rear shock mounts which i believe are another weak point on these cars..some guru should be along to help no doubt very shortly
