Frank - 

   I have a late 1976 TR6 that I've owned for 24 years.  The phenomenon you
are experiencing is what I've always called the "TR6 twitch". It seems to
happen when the rear end "unloads" after hitting a bump or after a weight
shift (like after you've gone around a curve and are straightening the
wheel). My car is in very good kit, as they say, and has a tube shock
conversion and a rear sway bar. I have no idea what causes this and have
gotten quite used to it over the years. I just had some alignment work done
and had adjustable trailing arm mounts installed - these should not make a
difference but we'll see what happens.
