Jimmiech1, nobody is really getting what your saying are they. They're getting hung up on the "wind" part. The wind or natural conditions have nothing to do with it. I'm trying to find out the exact same problem with my Deville. I know it has something to do with the computer on the air suspension or the struts or something. If the car sits real low, it's def the air ride.

As I drive especially if I accelerate hard front wheels seem to sway


It can be a few things wrong here so the best thing for you and the safest for me to say is take it for a m.o.t even if you still have a long m.o.t. left not much money to pay to get this right

My 1994 cadillac concours doesn't ride smooth it sways a lot and the service ride control message is on the dash how do i fix it and what are the solutions


Those models had air ride on the back and adustable struts on the front. Usually the ride control light is on because of faulty sensors in the struts which are expensive to replace. You could run a scan on the system to find out for sure.
If the car sways on turns, you may have a problem with one of the stablizer bars or links.
I would take it to a shop that does suspension work and get an estimate or two.

Recently had new idler arms installed along with new shocks all around. Van now seems unstable...sways. Could torsion bars need adjusting?


When you change the two idler arms did you have the front end aligned? It could be possible that the alignment is off. If you are having to put alot of input to the steering wheel while driving that may give you the sway feeling you are describing. The torsion bars control front ride height and should be checked as part of the alignment. Hope this helps.

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.

Lincoln navigator handles fine with no wind or rain present. With cross winds or light rain the navigator has unstable side to side ''jerky'' tendencies. Additionally, when passing box trucks and ''18...


you could try replacing the shock absorbers, use a stiffer/firmer shock. ( check out "bilstein" shocks). inspect the sway bars, look at the rubber mounts, make sure they are still in good condition. Or maybe install a aftermarket sway bar. also see if you can adjust the ride height of the suspension. I can adjust the ride height on my 89 Mark VII. up or down.

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!

I have just bought a Suzuki Vitara 4u2, T Reg. Is it normal to feel like your swaying and jumpin all over the road when your driving it??


Hmmm, it's normal for the ride in a 4wd to feel "different" they feel like they wallow a bit in turns and shudder a bit over bumps compared to a car, but it should not be jumping all over the road! try the old suspension test, go to each corner of the car and give it a good hard push down and let go, if the car comes back up and setles, all is good, if it doesn't go down or if it bounces up and down, the shocks/struts need replacing. Also try grabbing each of the front wheels and trying to move them left to right, then up and down, if there is any clunking or movement (without the steering wheel moving) there is a problem. left and right wobble indicates steering problems, up/down wobble indicates a wheel bearing broblem.
