    Trailing arm bushes, panhard rod bushes.

    Worn shocks.

    Wanna tell us a bit more info regarding what mods youve done?

    Did it suddenly just start doing this on a drive or what?

    iam not too sure as to what ive got i bought the car with all the suspension done and not too sure at what iam looking at. well i have just recently finished a engine swap and i have had the car up on jacks on the front and i thought maybe putting alot of pressure on the rear may cause a fault

    Most likely panhard rod bushes. Get under the car with a long lever bar and lever a few things.

    This is a silly question but... Tyres pumped up.???.. Its always the little things..
    But I agree with everyone else... Bushes and shocks... more than likely.

    i have put a jack under the diff of the car and lifted it up but as iam lifting it up the right side wheel lifts up more than the left side does that mean my left shock is rooted?

    red work... its not that silly of a question..

    after working on my car one day i took it for a "test drive" and it just felt like shit... pulled to the left etc..

    at first i though i must have bent an arm some where but turns out my front left tire was near flat
