2002 Chevy Impala, the back end slides to the right when driving

I have a 2002 Chevy Impala, the back end feels like it slides (for lack of better description) to the right when I go over a bump (pot hole, speed bump, uneven pavement) in the road. The tires are not new but they were good enough to pass inspection last month. Any ideas on what the problem could be?

Your shocks are probably blown. You can tell this by looking at the tell tell signs of the fluid stains coming from the top inside of shocks onto the outside of the lower part.

Rear end unstable when weight is shifted to passenger side


You are going to have to get under there and give everything as good look. Check all bushings for wear and looseness, check springs to make sure they aren't broken and check struts for leakage. Struts are gas-charged and if one has leaked out usually there will be residual oil at the top where the shaft goes in. When checking suspension, check with wheels supported (on ramps) and check free (jack under chassis, wheels and axle hanging) Don't just look...try to move stuff to see if there is any play there.
Personally, I wouldn't drive it 'till it's fixed. In an emergency situation you will loose control if the back end isn't tracking correctly!

Steeing wheel vibrates when i turn to the left from a stop


Does it feel like it's trying to pull back straight? if so, I would say you have a seized strut bearing on the right side.

Vibration and noise from front end while driving


Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.
