Lately, i seem to be loosing the back end easily when cornering.

I'm not doing daft speeds and it mostly happens on round abouts.

It only happens when I'm turning right, for the life of me I cant seem to lose the back end when I'm turning left (and believe me I've tried)

Tyres - fine
Shocks - fine
Brakes - fine

any ideas?...

Have you checked for play in the suspension arms , are the roundabouts that you have a problem on a short distance from a petrol station ?????

Glad I could help :)

Glad I could help :) Nah, he said LOOSING not LOSING.
Sounds like it just wants a tightning.

I am being hugely thick here but I just don't get it. Are you suggesting that there is oil on the roundabout or have I completely missed the joke???

Silly me, you are of course correct Jake, however (you know the thread) I am but a lower-class, illiterate, poor supra owner, my lack of reading skills should therefore be explained.


I suggest a type-98 24 3/8's spanner and a 20tonne Jig

You should then be able to tighten the rear end without any problems.

Especially at roundabouts.

That's it, no joke
