Wj Uneven rolling in corners

hi All,
if im driving along and swerve from one side of the road to the other (road clear)

when i turn to the right it feels ok but when i turn to the right it seems to lean a lot more, i assume it could be the rear shock on the rhs?

it had been stood for a while by the previous owner..

I would say you have a broken/ worn out sway bar link...

any simple tests to do other than look at it as it will be the weekend before i get to look at it properly.

it does seem to handle differently depending which corner your going round, i thought it was the Tyre pressures at first but they are fine now i have had the rim leak repaired.

Its something to do with the rear sway bar most likely. Check for any broken bolts on the sway bars axle mount, and the sway bar end links. Make sure your spring isn't broken as well. Also makes sure that none of your shocks are leaking, or have blown a seal.

Is it broken?
