Yes! Not necessarily uphill though. I had steering wheel wobble on the motorway, between 60 and 65 mph. Anything above or below these figures no wobble at all.

What did you find this was related to? Squatting off the rear? Why?
Appologies, it should read - ' A lot of travel/camping gear in the boot'
simply more weight in the back then normal.
Oil shocks loose they performance as you drive therefore Gas/oil are much better as the 'foaming' effect does not take place.
In my case rear end was sogging/ squating to much, front end was lifting so front wheels were 'dragged' inbord by the lower arm.

Is your lower arm OE size or already extended?
Your wobble looks like wheel releated so fine.

Unless it's a gear box problem time / mileage will
Tell there all ways the option of getting. The tripods machined to fit angular rotating bearings or tipods with curved faces Volvo use angular correction bearings !!!

Re: Brian the BFP (Big Friendly Panda)- 1988 Sisley 4X4

Changed the rear springs this weekend.

During full articulation the leafs would invert. And with the larger hangers sat almost flat in most situations.

So I had a pair of leafs modified. Re-curved to achieve an extra 25mm lift and also had an extra leaf to increase the stiffness.

However they seemed too stiff in comparison to the originals so removed one of the original leafs before installation.

Overall results are great. Suspension slightly stiffer. Car stance is much improved and with no obvious loss off articulation.
