question about stock YJ suspension

OK.. went to look at a '93 this afternoon..
felt like the rear-end was squatting a lot and maybe twisting/sliding laterally in turns.. is this normal? or is there something wrong like sagging springs or worn bushings? also.. the steering jumped around from right to left occasionally, not much distance moved, but enough to worry me how it would handle at freeway speeds.. it a worn tie-rod or what..

heh.. i'm a newbie so cut me some slack.. heheheheh

Actually, that sounds a lot like how my Jeep drives having removed the axle track bars. Peek underneath and look for a thick bar connected from the differential housing to the frame. If there is no bar there, that would explain the driving characteristics you describe.

If the track bar IS in place though (there's also one attached to the front axle), it could be something worn out, most likely spring bushings. Besides this, it'd be hard to say without looking at it first-hand.
