    I have an issue with my 86, for some reason the car seems to dart into the corners and almost feels like the rear end of the car isn't connected to the front. I've had the car set up alignment wise ( front toe and camber etc ) and was set to stock settings for a uk Corolla for toe and 2 degrees of camber. The caster wasn't checked.

    All the bushes on the car are good and no play can be found in anything, I've replace the inner and outer steering arms.

    The car has coilovers on the front that are working well with no leaks, the rears are trd blue shocks ( again been removed and checked ).

    If anyone has any ideas On what could be causing the issue it would be appreciated as I don't wanna start replacing arms and polybushing everything if it's not needed as its a road car not full on drift beater

    Cheers Pete

    Have you tried swapping tyres round to different corners at all? Had similar issues and turned out to be a dodgy rear tyre that looked OK by eye.

    Probably like 60mm on the rear and 70 on the front,

    It's got roll centre adjusters on too

    This is interesting as mine felt exactly like that at 3 Sisters last weekend.
    Does it pull to the left or right at all?
    Mine is pulling to the left so I'm hoping it will feel better once that's sorted.

    Pulls a tiny bit but always put it down to road camber and wide tyres
