So I have a 17’ X3 XDS I am running a mud tire I have a issue that has developed. So what the machine is doing, so anywhere between 30mph and up the ass end of the machine kicks from the passenger side towards the drivers in 2wd and if you really get on the gas it’s obviously way worse in 4wd it is not as bad. I really notice it on pavement, and some on gravel road. The first thing I checked was the nuts and bolts on the rear end, both rear axles look to be straight to the eye. Any constructive comments would be great. I can try to post some pictures tonight if that helps.

This is dumb, but have you checked tire pressure? I have seen them off a few psi and can't noticeably tell by looking at them. For me it caused a huge pull to the left just driving.

Maybe you stripped the spline in the outer hub making it one wheel drive? Son did that on his Outlander, would push hard to one side under acceleration. Jack rear off the ground (tires not touching) with it in park, see if you can rotate either tire. Neither tire should rotate.

I actually thought I had a flat originally and that’s what was causing it. But they were both good.

You jacked the car up and made sure the cv joint was not busted inside the boot? Tim
Yes I jacked it up, so I pulled hub off just a bit ago the middle radius rod bolt is bent on passenger side and now it seems I have slop in the hub hole.... do you know how snug bolt is to start with? Or is there some play?

Get the Toe rod connection fix kit from ST and new bolts (don't know if the kit comes with new ones), do both sides as you are at it.

Avoid the Assault double sheer bracket kit, the Shock Therapy's TLS kit is a better setup and all any normal rig needs. ZRP knuckles are great, but unless you're racing or want to throw a bunch of money at it, TLS kit is a solid permanent fix, it does come w the new bolts also in case you bent the stock ones.
