Thanks Bob - You are probably right, and th seems to have had the same symptoms with resolution only by replacement of the shocks. Do you think that Koni's will be significantly better than the OE items, which I think are Billstein. I agree with you about wander with partly worn tyres, but the problem here is definately float over ripples rather than following ridges or camber changes.
