I wish my mechanic had told me that. Knowing what I know now, I am thinking that I might have been able to fix the problem years ago by replacing the rear suspension parts. Instead, my mechanic never seemed to even really believe what I was telling him about what I experienced during winter driving. That experience of not being believed and thus not getting actionable advice is frustrating.
