After new tire installation, an unnerving rear wandering occured at speeds of 60kms and above. Suspension components appear to be servicable. Any information would be welcome.
Thanks.

Was the car wandering before the new tires were installed?

No, not at all, but all tires were bald on the outboard edges, and when replaced, symptoms appeared. I've heard of a bushing (?) Between frame and rear differential that will fail but cannot locate item on vehicle. It would seem this could create these problems.

Inspect the bushings that isolate the rear sub frame from the "tub" of the car, also inspect the dog bones that link the rear trailing arms to the sub frame.
