Rear End Sway

Does anyone every feel the rear end kind of sway or feels a bit floaty during at speed acceleration? Let's say you are driving 50 mph and want to accelerate or change into a lane, does anyone ever feel the rear end get a bit squirmy? Not talking about traction but rather side to side play in the rear?

Have you had your wheel alignment checked? This can be a symptom of insufficient rear toe, or even toe-out. Like most powerful RWD cars, it requires a couple of millimetres rear toe in to maintain stability under acceleration.
