    96 Deville ride issue

    When I hit a pretty good bump the rear end of the car steps out to the right. Is this a problem with the air ride? I can't imagine that is normal. The car sits level and rides nice other than that. Anyone have or hear of this problem?

    Hi neighbor!

    It's not the ELC. It's more likely worn control arm bushings or you are in need of a 4 wheel alignment.

    Good point! I'll check the bushings and have her aligned then see how she does. Thanks neighbor!

    Check the bushings first. An alignment is a waste of money if they are bad.
