Q: My car goes through tires.

the rear end is squirelly hardly keep it on the road
My car has an automatic transmission.

This is a common concern on vehicle with worn or broken trailing arm bushings or trailing arms of the rear suspension but is not limited to these components. The area must be looked over by a professional and the vehicle put on an alignment machine to see where the problems are if they are not obvious broken parts. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out and point out any damages or worn parts and offer a more personal diagnosis on the suspension repairs needed to be able to align the vehicle properly.
