Replace the rear sway bar links or the sway bar bushings. Either or will cause a sway in the rear. If it is one side of the rear is off set . Car going down the road at an angle. Align the back of it...then realign the front.

My blazer feels like im driving sideways when i drive straight and rear end sways as i make turns

Don't drive it further than a local garage/technician or an experienced neighbour. Something maybe adrift in the axle/suspension area and could lead to a crash. Most likely its one or more rubber bushes in the suspension need changing. Check your shocks while you are down there.

My 2007 Chevrolet Impala has some rear suspension problem. First noticed on snowy/icy road conditions traveling at 50 mph, the car was swaying, fish tailing with no traction. Later noticed when driving...

Replace rear shock absorbers.
Their function is to maintain contact between tires and floor. When they are worn the wheels spend too much time in the air without any traction.

My 1995 gmc jimmy sway's from side to side at 120 km or higher speed what could be the problem

the main problem is that someone is trying to drive it way too fast. narrow wheelbase and high center of gravity have spelled fatality many many times and nearly killed the Ford bronco II. it seems obvious to the casual observer but thousands of deaths and lawsuits resulted in recalls consisting of video tapes telling folks that you do not drive vehicles with narrow wheel bases and high centers of gravity very fast. The second problem is that the thing is nearly an antique. every part on that vehicle will fail from either time or use, or a combination. So 16 years of time and use have worn out every suspension and steering component. If you want to drive fast, get a low slung wide track unit. If you want it to drive like it is new, replace all the steering and suspension components and get a good 4 wheel alignment.

Cause of a clunk in the right rear of the Jeep when driving on an uneven surface.

Could be a broken shock absorber, abroken sway bar link, or just worn rubber bushings on any of these parts. You will need to get under the vehicle and visually check all these points, both where they attach to the rear axle and to the frame.

What does a rear axle look like

Your rear axle is the part that runs between the two rear wheels. The shock absorbers and springs are always attached to it. On a rear wheel drive or four wheel drive vehicle there is a bulge in the center of the axle where the gears are located. On a front wheel drive car, the axle may just be a length of box steel. On a rear wheel or four wheel unit there are drive axles inside the housing that connect the gears to the wheels. On front wheel drive there is a spindle on each end with bearings and a flange to mount the wheel.

Montero Sport clunks when I hit a bump

The front[or rear] sway bars have links in them that are rubber mounted,it sounds like one of the sway bar links is broken,or one of the sway bar bushings is missing.Find the sway bar and have a close look at the mounts to see if the problem lies here.

Noise from the rear of the vehicle

Check the rear Sway Bar Links, if they are sloppy, rusted or damaged, replace them first.
Check rear Sway Bar Bushings, if bad, replace and retest.
Possible bad Shock Absorber or bushing?
