2003 Unstable Suspension - Safety Concern

My 2003 does a funny dance over rough roads at 40+ mph (It seems like the rear axle hops to the right after going over a manhole cover or pothole) I replaced the rear shocks at 105,000 with no improvement. This is becoming a safety concern. Any suggestions where to look next?

wow. that usually happens when there's one lower-size rim on the rear. But i hope this is not the case. maybe check the springs again? one of them may have given out

Time to have a shop check:

- Shock absorbers
- Rear suspension for loose parts
- Tire pressures
- Tire damage
- Bent or damaged wheel(s)
