I had a similar problem with my right front, and I had a friend following my car and he said it looked like my tire looked like a broken shopping car wheel and was very whobbly. I had the tire rod and bushings replaced and it solved the problem.

Scary, the rear leans into a gentle turn or toward the low side of a slanted road causing me to correct the direction of the car. Very unsettling to say the least. It is not noticeable at slower speeds....

Check the struts. The struts usually contain both the spring and the shocks. One way to check them is bounce the car with your body weight by standing on the bumper. It should resist bouncing and if it bounces or drops right down, replace that strut. IT could also be a sway bar that is loose or missing. To check this you need to get under the vehicle and look for a bar that extends across the back of the vehicle by the wheels.

Struts noise?

I would tend to believe it's more likely a worn sway bar bushing or link if it's a rattle or a small clunk, if it's a loud clunk probably a strut, try bouncing he back of the car when parked, if you get the clunk probably a strut if only when driving,turning,braking probably just a bushing on the sway bar

Our 2000 Buick Lesabre has been bouncing violently. Had right front shock and spring replaced, but the car still bounces hard. What else could be wrong?

This really sounds like tire damage. Often a little difficult to detect, but what you do is jack up the car, INSTALL jack stands. Then rotate the wheel assembly while observing across the tread to some stationary surface. What you are looking for is any out of true.
Try your spare on any suspect tire location.

Feels like back right wheel bounces as driving it. Any suggestions

The strut may be worn out. Try bouncing that corner of the car up and down. It should not continue to bounce after you've pushed it down and up a few times. If it does, time for strut/shock replacement.

My back wheel when it hit a pot hole or any other bump in the street it bounce or not enough bounce to it ...the struts are ok an suspension is ok I was told so whats goin on..can u help me

I not sure if I fully understand your question. Are you asking should your car be bouncing more when you hit a bump or pot hole?

Well this is how struts and shocks are suppose to work: Struts and shocks are suppose to assist in providing a smooth ride, when you hit a bump or pot hole the struts and shocks absorb the force so you won't feel the full impact when driving. A good set of struts and shocks will eliminate excessive bouncing when driving or when you come across bumps and other mishaps in the road. So inconclusion if your car is not doing a whole lot of bouncing when you are driving that is a good thing, because that means your struts and shocks are doing their job and that means there is nothing wrong with them.

Driving Jeep about 45mph-50mph, Right Wheel starts to bounce and pull to right very hard, can only apply brakes and pull off to shoulder, and then I can drive again until it starts bouncing once again....

Sounds like a variation of what's known as "death wobble" You need to have everything in the front end checked over carefully for signs of wear. That includes shocks and steering damper (sideways shock on steering linkage) replacing damper will cover up the problem but usually will not cure it, so if you replace it be aware that the problem will usually be back in a week. Most times it is traced to a bad track bar end or mount that has elongated at the differential, or bad ball joints. However,If you have recently had the tires removed for any reason, I would loosen the lugs and re-tighten them in a star pattern, using a torque wrench. I'm pretty sure the setting is 70 lbs, but check that #. don't forget though...I said check everything (including mount for steering box.)

transmission computer is receiving a sensor signal indicating that a wheel is losing traction also make sure all tires are same height and diameter ( worn and soft tires could cause weird feedback signals, also worn shocks and springs may allow the wheel(s) to bounce around a lot making it appear as though its got no traction
