Horizontal Sway

Hi Guys,

When torque is applied, I have a bad rear end sway to the right. I tightened the C/Beam front bolts to 50 Ft/Lbs and the rear to 70 Ft/Lbs, didn't seem to help. Read about C/Beam plates, and toe rod bad that could cause the problem. Any suggestions on this matter would be appreciated. Thanks

MOst that have used the Beam plates said that fixed the problem..
I have the beam plates mainly for ease of pulling the car apart and reassembly

the beam plates that are made by bill boudreau are the answer to this problem . his ph is 602 319 6575 . they really stop the rear from kicking out when shifting at 7 k rpms .
