'79 Corvette sways while driving

by Justin
(Florida)

My 1979 Corvette while I am driving 30 mph and up (cruising and accelerating)sways to the left and right. I do know it is coming from the rear end. I have heard that the bushings from the arms that are holding the read axle is bad and needs to be replaced with polyurethane bushings. Do you think this is the primary reason or can there be another issue? Is there a test that I can do to see if the bushings are bad?

If the car moves left or right after hitting a bump you need an alignment. Front and back both should be aligned. Firestone does my vet and they are really good.
