    They link one side of the car to the other. When you lean to the right or left when going round a bend the bar twists and pulls a link rod on the other side pulling the body of the car down making the car adopt a flatter/more level attitude through the bend.

    Are you booting it when it does it?

    If so it could be shocks are weak letting your raised wheel skip.

    What spec is it?

    It may be you are asking too much from the standard set-up.

    well, the LS only has the basic suspension anyway, and at 65k, if your shocks haven't already been changed, the rear ones will almost def need doing.
