03 M3 rear sway

My 03 M3 convertible sways when I hit bumps with a slight turn on the highway. The rear wheels feel like they are headed in different detections. Any ideas

Check your rear control arm bushings. They are probably shot and need replacing. Do you have a clunking noise when going over the bumps? If you do, shock upper mounts are also shot and need replacing.
