Strange Motion

by Jim Smith
(Gulf Breeze FL USA)


Ok.....1977 stock Vette. Car has been running great but noticed today that when I accelerate/de-acellerate the car gets a pretty severe shimmy. The rear end kicks over to the right and the front goes left a bit upon letting up on the gas.

Transmission levels are good. Alignment I believe is good as I have even wear on the tires.

Visual inspection did not show any leaks around the rear end of broken struts/supports etc.

Any ideas?

Check your trailing arm shims.Same thing happened on my 77.Changed everything in front before i found out it was in the rare. Good luck.
