Default rear end

Heyy
I've been trying to fix a problem with my sons buick(92 lasabre).The rear end jumps to the right when he hit a bump.The rear lower ball joint was loose so I replaced it,but still doing it.I checked the tie rods all tight and sway bar is ok.Just can't figure.Any suggestions.....

Have a 4 wheel alignment done lately? Are the struts in good shape?

Couldn't bushings in the shocks, swaybar, and/or control arms make it do that? Can anyone verify?

I find i have a lot of bump steer. My struts are getting to the end of their life though, but everything is tighted up nicely under there.

An alignment if you haven't had one in a long time is a good idea though.

My sympathies to you, Mazee. May God hold you and your family close during the holiday season.

A 4 wheel alignment cleared up a lot of my problem of the back end kicking out over sharp bumps. New tires took care of the rest.

I'm in much need of both....But no point when the car doesn't run and has a junk CV shaft anyways.
