I have a 2003 Cobra with a stock IRS. I had a 4 wheel alignment. The car drives to the left under hard acceleration. I feel the rear end push to the right. The problem is in the IRS. I'm thinking it may be the end links, but I really don't know.
If you have had this problem, and fixed it, or are an expert, I would really appreciate your help to solve my problem.
Thank you

its funny that you say that. Because during the original alignment we had to replace one of the tie rod ends. I suspect that may be at the heart of the problem.that said, I'm going to replace all the bushings and all the tie rods.
