Hi, what do you mean by 'wondery' - does it stay in a straight line when you take your hands off the wheel (obviously testing safely in an open area), or is it pulling to one side? If its wandering/pulling then your tracking might need adjusting

You might want to re-post this problem in the "Steering and suspension" forum for advice? I'm no expert, but if it was a Landrover with those symptoms and it was sitting level/damping quickly when you jump off each corner of the bumper (to encourage bounce), then I'd be looking at bush wear. Haven't had need to explore that area of T5s yet thank goodness. Welcome to the site by the way!:)

Any service history? Might be worth doing a full service and also doing your gates couplings if they have not been replaced.
