When driving at speed above 40mph the rear seems to roll side to side-checked obvious suspension/stablilizer/coil springs etc., the springs however look as if they need replaced -does this cause motion side to side-I thought it controlled up and down?

I would check the sway bar bushing and links in front. And the traction bars in the rear... Could be front suspension parts, but you usually here a noise at cornering, clicking or popping. Sway bar is a left and right motion at higher speeds. Traction is more unstable at higher speeds.
A sway bar is a suspension piece that keeps the left and right side of vehicle connected to help with turns. They are held together through sway bar links at each end, which are fairly common to break or rattle over bumps.
the speedo is electronic, not cable, this problem is caused by a sticking stepper motor that moves the needle, a stepper motor is a miniature electric motor that can move and hold one position, this was a common problem at the dealer I worked at, u will need to pull the speedo and send it out for repair, I use the following link for this service. http://www.dnaspeedometers.com/
If it's wheel bearings, they should get louder the faster you go. Also, if you have one going out, loading up the suspension on that side will make it louder. For instance, if you have a bad front left bearing, and you take a right-hand turn at speed on the highway, that will load the left side suspension since the car will roll to the left. The noise would get louder. Similarly, if you took a left turn, and the weight shifted off of the left side, the noise would go away.
Try jacking up the car and grabbing the wheel at the top and bottom and shaking it hard. If you get any play or looseness in the wheel, chances are the bearing is bad.
