Default Cant drive straight??

Ok so, its almost unnoticeable but its become very apparent that there is something wrong with the suspension of my car. Im finding the car "wanders" left to right no matter how straight I want it to go.

Also, the outside of my rear tires are showing signs of uneven wear. I dont know if these two things are related but anyone have any idea? Where do I start figuring this out?

A few things to check if you haven't would be the rubber bushing in the control arms , sway bars links and all the bushing in the rear suspension. If you can jack the car up high enough, put it on stands and then jack up the suspension you might be able to find a loose component. Put a pry bar between components and try moving them . I have replaced what I call trailing arms on the rear on a few cars over the years. Another possibility is someone jacked up the car using the suspension and bent something. Good luck

Rear wheel bearings maybe? But yes, check the control arms and sway bars also.

I have a 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo with 104,000 miles on it. 3.1L V6. Recently my car temp started overheating (260 degrees) and there was no hot air coming out of the vents.

Please help! I don’t know what to try next.
