Suspension Help?

Hey guys,

I've got another problem with my 2000 Toyota Celica. It was lowered Eibach sportline springs. I'm not sure what struts I have but I think they are stock but my suspension feels super stiff.

Anyways... my cousin recently pointed out that whenever I go over any type of bump in the road, the tail of my car jerks out to the side. It's consistent with all bumps. I'm not sure exactly what it is.. or where to take it to get it checked out.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot in advance!

What do you mean by jerks out to the side?

Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

Well I believe that when I hit the ground going over the bump the tail end literally jumps out as I hit the ground.. It's done this consistently since I bought it used. So I don't know whether it's just me being paranoid or there's legit a problem.

I had this problem with my ride. I got an alignment done and it fixed it for me. That may or may not be the problem for you... look into it.

Thanks for the advice.. I'll take it to get an alignment right away. I just noticed it getting really bad in wet driving conditions... my car is like randomly swerving....
