Has 35000 miles. Been doing for awhile but seems to be getting worse. Went through new rear tires in about a year, wore them down wires. Does it when I accelerate, changing lanes on uneven roads, can even feel on the road to my house at 25 mph. It's very scary feeling at times.
If anyone else has had this problem I would appreciate if you would share how you resolved it, or if anyone just knows. I've looked under it and dont see anything out of the ordinary.
Thanks

You don't have a Hellcat, so normal acceleration should not be causing the rear to lose traction. Have you changed the throttle response (a.k.a. throttle boost) with a aftermarket tuner or device? Too much throttle boast will cause the throttle response to be to abrupt when accelerating. The other thing it could be is a problem with the differential. Your car has a open differential (not limited slip), and if there's a problem where the wheel slip is not switching torque between the rear wheels, your differential could be driving only one wheel ... causing it to push the rear to one side.

Could be the type of tires you put on or possibly the alignment. I have heard of this with guys who put larger tires on the rear even with expensive tires like Michelin’s. Seem to recall that their alignment was off?

Had this happen and it ended up being the tires. After replacing them(4) it never came back.
