That sucks man! Is there any evidence of the cradle moving around? I had a similar issue but more when I accelerated the tail end would wag. I replaced my BMR cradle inserts with Pedders full bushings and problem solved!

nothing that I can see so far,
time to start swapping parts is coming just was hoping It was an easy fix.
really hate spending money and time on parts I already replaced.

Maybe not but at least he knows everything is tight! OP, how far are you from Wretched Motorsports? They're in Enfield CT. Just a suggestion, call Rob and see if he can check it out for you!

If you didn't replace the bushings in the trailing arms themselves I would at least take the time to check them out. It doesn't take too much time to verify if the poly-urethane bushings are good or not in the trailing arms and toe rods.

The cradle inserts only do so much to control that movement back there since they work in conjunction with the factory rear cradle bushings. Going with full poly-urethane replacement rear cradle bushings is always a better option and will control the rear cradle substantially better.

Agreed!

Havent had the time to mess with it further

New wrinkle after runs at wot the car does it

Saving up to replace the trailing arms toe links and all the bushings just going to take a while

So far
Alignment is fine
Nothing's loose

Did notice the wheel shaking today (not terrible) going to have the tires rebalanced even though I'm pretty sure that's not it just to eliminate it

My car had slight bump steer for a while wasn't too bad hitting bumps and going around curves the car would shimmy kind of like wobble back and fourth motion like a sway

Anyway took the car to Detroit and back for Bbomg5 now the car is 100 times worse cars moving a lot out on the road def not cool.

The car
1SS 76 mil turbo
Pfadt springs 1.25 drop
Sphon tunnel brace
BMR trailing arms
BMR toe rods
BMR full poly subframe bushings
9 inch forgestars 11 inch rears
Pfadt sway bars front and rear
Stock end links
Cars alignment is perfect tire pressures fine
Not a balancing issue bc them it would vibrate and shake

Is it the poly subframe bushings ? i have heard they move.
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated
There is no reason to gues at this.

If you think the rear sub-frame bushings are the culprit use a GoPro or similar camera and get a bit of video on the rear sub-frame bushings. Post it here.

If that isn't conclussive we'll point that camera at a few more critial locations until we isolate the issue and identify a fix.

Maybe the control arm broke? I know the control arm tab on one of my LCA's broke where the endlink hooks up and the car wabbled all over the place. Looking under the car real quick it looked fine till I inspected the control arm.
