    Default car wobbles in rear ean , not planted anymore , helpppp

    ok guys need some help
    the tyre shop put my tyres on and didnt put springs back in right and lowered it down and i drove about 30 kms feeling something was wrong , once i checked i noticed the springs were bent cause they wernt in place right.l, i have new springs and every bush ever rubber everything under the car is new because it was loose in the ass end after the springs got bent and felt like it wanted to come up over my head around corners , it still does it now after replacing everything can someone tell me what it might be thats causing it to not be planted on the ground and be loose in the ass end


    its a 2002 vx commodore IRS

    p.s its not tyres its not shocks or springs nothings loose its all new now its exactly the same stuff in there as i had before the loose ass started >>>>> could the floor of the car where the springs sit up to be bent ??

    Hi
    some times rear coils can rotate and not go back location correctly . Donot imagine your problem is huge but really need picture .
    Check your wheel nuts ,sounds like the tyre shop is a little bit crap .

    Alignment issues after replacing all that stuff?

    Why drop suspension to change a tyre?

    sounds like the springs have been cut dodgy style to be falling out

    So you replaced all the suspension bushes as well? Is the rear k frame bolted to the floor correctly?

    We’re all the suspension arms etc tightened at ride height? I would slacken everything and retighten at ride height.

    Well I think you have said you have checked fairly much everything it could be so it might be time to start at the beginning and go over everything again and consider using a different outfit to check the alignment than the previous shop that stuffed it up.
