Clunk and movement in rear end at low speed

by shane
(brisbane, australia)

Hi all,

Firstly I live in Australia so no mechanics or anything have any idea about the suspension set ups so I either have to do it myself or tell them how to do it and supervise.

Now that's said, when turning at slow speeds i have a clunk and side shimmy from the rear end. When i say side shimmy its like the inner wheel is moving towards the outer wheel at regular intervals.

I have had the diff rebuilt, rear trailing arms rebuilt, rear end alignment (although i am suspicious of this).

Any thoughts? Like I said no mechanics have any idea of these cars or set ups and I'm just a tad tired of throwing money at them without fixing the problem.
