Fuel Tank baffles busted

Ok. I know I have one bad ball joint but i dont think that would be responsible for both left and right turns. When making a 90 degree turn or more the 91 deville stumbles as though the wheels are not turing in unison. I have not had the vehicle balanced rotated or aligned (due to failing ball joint) in quite some time. Runs great otherwise except there in some chop when driving straight. Please help. I'm out of work (and money) so I can't really take it in to the shop.

Mine went bad about a year ago. A new tank from Autozone fixed the problem. The old tank had plastic baffles, the new one had metal. The plastic became hard and brittle over the years. The new should last forever. The baffles sit around the pump and when they break up the pump starves for fuel on turns.
