W124 is very side wind sensitive..

My '86 300E is kind of 'directional-stability-impaired'.

When going straight out on the freeway the car will more or less shift lanes if hit by a side wind (not hurricane-like side wind. Just normal windy weather.) And if i go over the white lines on the road, the car moves what feels like 1 ft. to the side and back again when not on the white line anymore. -Makes it look like i'm drunk or incapable of controlling my car..

The behaviour is worse with the wide summer tires. But it is still very noticable on norrow winter tires too.

Is this caused by poor alignment? -Worn out swaybar bushings?

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do, you're a mile away -and you have his shoes!
