    would the perished anti roll bar bushes cause the car to steer funny and go into slight skids going into corners?

    Is it the back end that's stepping out, esp' over a bit of rough road? Mine had that, it was the upper control arms at the rear and I also had 1 shot shocker. The ARB bushes will only make a knocking noise, they wont make the car step out.

    the back is coming out but on a normal road its not to rough etc,its very hard to explain its like hitting ice on the road or something

    Mine started out not too bad, it'd only step out at the back over 50mph on a smooth road. But it got worse so that even going over a manhole would make it step out if I was going over 40.

    I really sounds like what happened with mine, like I said the cause on mine was the upper control arms at the rear, 35+vat each, and I had one rear shock also gone so had to get the both replaced. Mine always seemed to step out or slip to the drivers side, and it was the drivers side rear shock that was gone.

    Check to see if either of your rear shocks are leaking.

    Hope you get it sorted mate,

    Tim
