check the rear shocks, all the springs, and make sure nothing is binding up

check the ball joints there good.Do have anthour question,Could the front springs be to short causing coil bind and if so how could you check for it.Also it only does this on a rough race track witch iy is 99% of the time.

Try a 6-6 or 7-7 RF shock. And pull the LR shock off and see if it feels normal.

if the track is extremely rough try a 5-7 on the rf, or a 4-6 if your car is under 2900# er so
