I would check all the welds etc, a ladder bar system can only move fore and aft if something is broken in the mounting system

hi ive cheeked all welds looked at floor for sighns of cracks ripples etc and nothing ive fully welded the 3x2 box section to rear chassis and front chassis then i stiched welded the orangle chassis for sum strengh so if im pre loading me axel badly the rest must be flexing body or chassis obly prob metal only moves so much and comes bk so much and my tyres have such a foot print sumthing is going to brake at most so looks like i need a lsd to fit a volvo 940 axel

If you don't have a full cage what is stopping the chassis from flexing,, what are the rear frame rails made of,,3x2.....
Do the ladder bars run onto a proper crossmember..
If the rear is moving about on a fairly gentle drive my advice would be to not use the car, the movement at full acceleration could move it far enough to break, and that could be painful for either yourself or a fellow racer...
