So, do you think there was a little movement going on with my rear suspension?

I think these were a little worn. 😂

Also notice one was a 69-74 rod and the other was the thicker 75-82 rod.

I went back with the thicker rods.  I can definitely tell a difference in the way the car handles.

I can imagine that there was a lot of camber change when cornering.

The improvement is noticeable!  Now I need to get it realigned.
