VEHICLE SWAYS SISDE TO SIDE, FEELS LIKE THE WIND IS BLOWING THE VEHICLE OFF THE ROAD

Hello, when you had it down for struts were the stabilizer bar bushings and end links checked for wear?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

YES THEY ARE FINE

Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 1 year ago.

Thanks, I'll open this back up so other experts may offer their thoughts.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.

was the front end aligned after replacing the struts?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

YES SIR, WE REPLACED THE STRUTS BECAUSE THEY WERE LEAKING BAD, NOW IT SEEMS WORSE

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.

So you are answering yes, that the front end was aligned?

If the front is fine, perhaps that rear is loose.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.

Go out to the Arcadia and standing near the front fender on either side push in hard on the side of the vehicle, like you were the wind. Press real hard and get it rocking from side to side and then let go. When you let go does it continue to rock more than a few times? Do the same thing at the rear of the vehicle and let me know if that does it too.

WILL CHECK AND GET BACK TO YOU TOMORROW, THE ALIGNMENTS WAS DONE AND IS GOOD, CAN A REAR TOW LINK CAUSE THIS ISSUE?

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.

Don't know what you mean by tow link. Anyhow, perhaps you should also tell me at what speed you are going when it appears to sway, how long has this been happening and what parts were replaced after and even immediately before this occurred.
