I cant seem to find any info on a problem i have using the search, so forgive me if this was already covered. I have a 05 V with H&R springs and the lowered shock mounts. My problem is when driving over 60 mph and hitting a bump my car will shift to the right and then back to the left. It almost feels like the tailend will come around. Im afraid to drive it any faster fearing it will throw me off the road if i hit a big enough bump. Is there something Im missing? The car has yet to have a alignment.

Other guys here are a WHOLE lot more knowledgable than I when it comes to this.

What spring rates do you have? What shocks? Who did the install? How are your tires? Could be the alignment is out of whack, too.

I installed the springs myself there H&R sport springs. 1.2 front and 1.0 rear. I have the FE4's with a 1 in. spacer for the top mounts. Tires are new GSD3's.

... H&R sport springs. 1.2 front and 1.0 rear. ...I'm over my head. At least it's bumped.

Check your install. Get the alignment and make sure all suspension components, incuding the rear cradle are properly torqued.

My car felt like this for a while until I got a good performance alignment done. If everything is tightened up, I'd make an alignment a priority.

Here's a link to the specs I used. They're a little aggressive, and put more wear on the inner part of the tire, but if you take corners fast the wear will be even.
