About two weeks ago I was driving back to Jackson at the end of break. It was at night and I was driving about 90 accross this four lane, two in each direction, divided bridge. I saw this small deer or large dog dead in the middle of the two lanes, so I swerved right and then back left a bit to make sure I didn't hit the wall and it felt like the back left tire came up off the ground. Also I didn't move the wheel very much, only a few degress in each direction.

This of course is fairly bad, so I have been poking around and bit and it seems as though x-brace and strut bar would fix this problem, or would jus the x-brace do it. I do not want to stiffen too much, my tires are pretty good, but I don't want to put too much strain on them while cornering (they're not name brand tires and were on there when i bought the car but seem to be decent).

I didn't think those could go bad... the mounts maybe... I'll give it a look.
