02 SE Rear toe Issue?

It has 180k on it , had to put 3 sets of rear bearings on it in the last 8 months, it handles poorly in any thing but dry weather( rear end is squirly)

it has also been eating tires, could this be a rear toe issue?

Check the condition of the bushings in the rear control arms.

Sounds like it. If one of the rear arms is out of whack it could be giving you some nice rear steering. The bushing in my rear arm is starting to go. When I lean on it hard in a corner it feels like I am rolling over a sidewall of a flat tire.
