A few months ago I was involved in a small fender-bender, at around 10mph I have rear-ended another car. Exterior damage is minimal (a small ding on my bumper), but since the accident, the car seems to be wandering at higher speeds, as well as the rear feels like it wants to fishtail when I make a swerve or a more-than-mild lane change. I've taken it to many different shops, and while all of them can reproduce the issue, none of them are able to properly diagnose it and I'm left empty-handed and somewhat desperate...
I have already done the following repairs since the event:
- Replaced all four tires
- Had the car aligned. Checked twice at two different locations just to be sure.
- Replaced front upper and lower control arms
- Replaced rear control arms
- Replaced rear trailing arms
The shops that I have taken the car to have checked all the suspension elements you can imagine (tie rods, stab links, sway bars, struts, shocks), and no one is able to tell me what the cause of this behavior is. One of the shops has measured the frame, and even put a whole different set of wheels, to no avail.
Do you have any ideas based on the description above? I'm running out of options at this point and it feels like driving this car is becoming dangerous because of this issue.
