Question about 1996 Nissan Altima
Wet or dry hitting pot holes or going over bumps car gets side ways very loose checked sway bar and stabilizer bushing wheel bearings cant seem to locate the problem any suggestions insides of tires are worn outside still look new
You need struts and a 4 wheel alignment. Sounds like a control arm in the back bent, or worn

SOURCE: when braking the truck shakes
as for losing control on bumps - it is most likely the rear end that seems to lose control. solid rear axles do that alot. My '05 Frontier does it over larger bumps....seems like the back end wants to swing out....even while going straight. My Mustang did the same thing a few years back.

It could be the front cv joints even when the 4wd is not engaged. The wheels are set up like a front wheel driven car, so they have half shafts that go into your transfer case. Have a look at the cv boots, and see if its leaking grease, but then again, the mechanic who replaced your wheel bearings would have noticed something wrong.
If not that, and if it clicks when you are truning the steering wheel, the rack and pinion has lost its fluid. Might wanna check the boots on the tie rods and see if they are leaking fluid.
