    worn bushes, alignment, rear tie bar/upright bent.
    remarkably soft and bendy if you have ever had a knock or kerb or pot hole

    Bushes then alignment would be my estimation, i made a different car out of mine by just getting the alignment done. Only one wheel out of the 4 was in spec....

    Most B5's will be in need of a new set of bushes all round, simply due to their age, So i'd be tempted to throw a set of bushes at it and get the alignment done.

    Would probably be worth doing the front arms too.

    OE rubber, too many unknown side effects with the poly bushes imo.
