Hmm not too sure on why it would do that...I've found out that 1 & 2 are control arms, now I just need to know what # 3 is if anyone can help!

It's a Sedan..And thanks for telling me that part! My brother named off a few parts that would be back there for me but when he had said tension 'strut', I dismissed it thinking he was talking about my struts!

LOL Thanks on the complimenton my 'drawing'...my 8 yr old seems to think he could do better! And if you look at the pic I posted, you can see that what I have labeled as #1 (control arm) is bent up pretty good! I've bought a new one and having it replaced this weekend. I'm hoping after that and an alignment that my rear will be in camber. When you look at the wheels from the rear of the car, they are leaning in at the top like / \ If they can't align it because something else is wrong, then I'll get them to tell me what is wrong...bad struts or something maybe?

I have no clue what happened quite honestly! Just noticed that everytime I hit water, dirt, pebbles, etc it throws me all over the road. Then one day I noticed my left rear tire was going flat, looked at it and the coils were showing! Put on a spare and drove it for a few days. The 'all over the road' mess got worse.I was putting groceries in the trunk not long after andlooked at the rear...that's when I noticed the tires leaning in at the tops. Could my 'bent elbow' be making bothtires lean in?
