Car moves strange around corners

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

New so forgive me if this is in wrong place

 

I have recently purchased a Focus 1.8 TDCi 2008 Mk2 facelift

I have a strage thing happening, the car feels like it lurches in corners at rear, if iam going over hill and corner feels like it jumps sideways  on road ?

is this what they call bump steering?

Im unsure what cound cause this, im thinking rear shockers or  roll bar ?

 

Any help would be greatly appriciated

There are a number of suspension items that could be at fault, the MK2 Focus handles nicely even when pushed so if the rear doesn't feel right then it's likely that something is worn.  It could be anything from a shock through to the rear trailing arm bushes, or anything in between.  For something like this, you might find that you end up having to take it to a garage so they can get it up in the air and start pulling/poking stuff etc.

There's nothing stopping you having a quick look underneath the rear as it could be something as simple as the drop links.
