Rear dances & feels unsettled

I started tracking w/a Cayman & it was always very steady & instilled confidence braking from high speed.

However, I've never felt the same w/the Exige. When braking on the main straights the rear just feels quite unsettled & dances around.

I'm running DS2500's front & rear right now, but it also did it w/the OEM pads, so what would be the normal cause and remedy?

Hmm. I'm no expert, but I'd try softening the rear damper rebound setting.

For me, that happened only when I set the front dampers soft as that cause me to hit the front bump stops and losing grip
OR too stiff of a rebound at the rear.
OR it could be the tire pressure.

Not much else can be said since no other relevant info was given like the type of suspension, alignment, tire pressure, type of tire, etc etc etc.
