tramlining problems

Okay so i just installed polyurethane rtabs car handles fine in the dry but tramlines like crazy in the rain? My tires have maybe 10% life left but ive never been scared shitless on the freeway before like this even with bald tires. Any idea what it might be?

Better get an alignment and post the numbers here. My rears are borderline on toe-in and the back end does feel a little skittish.

So your car can't be aligned properly because it's lowered and you wonder why it's not handling correctly?

Okay.
