    rear feels sloppy and unstable over bumps

    ive noticed that after changing out my sway bars (from stock to 1le) that my rear has been very unstable. if im on the highway, it bounces and sometimes feels like its going to throw me into the next lane. I do have the wrong size bushings in there right now, but am going to throw the stock one back in. ive only got 19mm bushings because summit sent the wrong ones. here are my mods:
    spohn chassis mounted TA -2 pinion angle
    relocation brackets
    poly lcas on lowest hole
    9" with tru trac
    bilstein hds
    stock springs
    1le swaybars (front and rear)
    I think thats it. If its the bushings, im going back to the stock one next week anyways. Ive also considered putting my lca's in the stock location to help with my regular driving and turning. any other ideas?

    Could be the bushings as they won't be working right.

    You can order just bushings from the sponcers to this site.

    Replace them first and report back to us if that was the problem or not.

    put back the stock rear swaybar and i'm sure the car will be better.
    keep the front 1le one, though.
    the rear is probably too stiff.
