I have a 2001 GMC Jimmy, for a while now as you drive at any speed it feels as though the left rear side slouches. It feels tippy especially when you make right turns. When driving it also feels like a titter todder as well. Upon a visual inpection the truck looks straight and the tire pressure is fine. What could be the problem?

Do you

You may have a broken sway bar link. It should be inspected.

Thank you that makes a lot of sense since the best I can describe it is unstable. My husband thinks it's all in my head but I am the one that has always driven it not him. Oh well I will get it checked again I just got a wheel bearing done on it, it's the second bearing on that side in less than 2 years. This truck really sucks it's very costly.
