Raise the left or right rear wheel in the "emergency lane change maneuver" and this was a good 4 inches off the ground too.

Dogleg, pegleg, tripod...you'll hear many different terms for the same thing. Not necessarily the 'proper' term, but it resembles a male dog peeing.

Usually means that the front and rear sways are mismatched for the weight distribution. I would bet that this would not occur with the car loaded with a person in each seat and baggage in the trunk. Not your typical auto cross condition though do you see a lot of cars do this with just a single person.

Its called having a straight axle rear end. Look at spec v's & older gti's in autoxing. Nothing new or to worry about.

Are you suggesting that a car with an independent rear suspension won't do that?

It's a FWD thing, seen since the first ones with stiff rear sway bars.

Watch a stiff 911 to see the front do the same.
