Thumbs Up 2001 166 3.0 sportronic - suspension vibration

Should have bought a Fordy. But I'm sooo glad I didn't .

I am experiencing a vibration only from the rear rhs wheel when cornering right.

If cornering right hard enough at medium to high (though nowhere near chav speed) the stability control light flashes, occasionally activating the stability and applying the brake to that wheel.

Both rear tyres were worn and stepped on the inner shoulder when I bought it (tracking from the factory I've heard??) which I have replaced, maybe this gives someone a better clue?

Anybody shed some light on this before I hand my wallet over to Alfa?

I get the exact same vdc cut in - never at racing speed, just at cruising speed

I've had the car 3 yrs & never sussed it
