When did you have an alignment last? What condition are your front and rear trailing arm bushings?

Wheel or tire issue.

Stop driving it and get it up on a rack.

I have a vert as well and it was doing the same thing over the summer. It is suspension related. In my case it was front shocks. If you search the internet you will find it can be a hundred things. If you have never changed the shocks or struts then that is likely it.

Just for your future knowledge.. ECStuning sells refresh kits for the suspension. It's where I buy my parts. Or you can go on realoem copy and paste the part numbers for the items needed and search ECStuning and it will pop up. Good site
