Problems with the rear end I think

OK the car is a 2001 330i with all most 160k on it. I have put on FK coilovers and installed new rcab. The rear end just does not feel right while driving. It is a DD and does most of the miles highway. The strut tower bushings have been replaced too

I dont know what I need to look at. Any thoughts on what could be going bad or replaced?

To better explain, It is the rear left wheel. When i go around a coner turning left it feels normal, but turning right it feels like it does not want to move or the rear feels lose.

Did you align it after replacing the RCAB? What type of RCABs did you get stock or urathane type? If stock did you preload them?
