    Default rear end wobble

    I am getting a slight wobble from the back end off my vectra on uneven roads is coming from the rear passenger side . I replaced the rear anti roll bar bushes a few weeks ago and i also had the rear camber arms replaced as the bolts were seized and the tracking could not be adjusted properly i am thinking the rear trailing bushes may be the problem any ideas?

    I reckon your rear shocks are needing replaced

    My vote would be for it being worn outer bushes on the rear upper control arms. Have a look at this thread for an easy way to replace them:

    TBH I would have thought a decent 4 wheel alignment place would have checked all of the bushes before doing alignment

    Wear some gloves and lift each side of the rear of the car
    If there is a squeek noise, it is that specific shock absorber

    Visualy inspect each spring, they usually fail right at the bottom

    Same thing on my previous vec - wobbly back end led to back shocks being replaced (they were just showing signs of leaking) and solved the problem

    im on the same boat
    feel a bit of twitching at the back on long bends where i go over rutts
    and my eyeballs are telling me the passenger rear has more neg camber

    wheels off defo when i finish for a few days on thursday

    think a cheap set of coilovers is what im needing as well as some polybushes and probably rose bushes for upper arma as one of the front struts are damp and im needing to give the whole suspention a good going over
