    Default loose rear end?

    I think my car handles pretty well for an 06 design however it does skip/slid around on the rear abit. like into a roundabout, little bit of left lock and then right lock sometime the rear will slide, even in the hot weather with GSD3s F1s on the rear it still does it?

    Any ideas?

    Tyre pressures maybe?

    Have you checked the springs and dampers over? My 03 plate siggy doesn't do this at all. Is it all the time or just in one or two places? Maybe its the road surface causing it?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Just had a 4 wheel Digital alingment check & adjust now a different handling car altogether might be worth a try you could be surprised how far out it is.

    Bet you any money its your rear shocks. There has been loads of threads on this mine included. When your rear shocks are knackered the back end skips very alarmingly even over the slightest imperfection of road surface.

    Its very easy to check or replace them there is a How 2 some where on this forum, but basically just undo the bottom bolt and push the strut up and down with your hand. ( if you can move it that is, if not then its seized).

    Changed mine at 45k its like a new car, but other people have changed theirs at 20k. Take a look i bet thats what it is?
