I never found that with it ??? Certainly never felt like it was about to let go. Sure the estates do wallow a bit when pressing on which might explain your impression :-\
Up til that time, I regularly drove a lot of Omegas, many estates as well, though not so many now.  And that Terbs reprobate probably won't get in the car with me ever again, despite it being a reasonably gentle ride ;D

I think I commented at the time, the suspension felt solid, but that car was unable to grip the road, ruining the effect.

I mean 2.2 degree negative camber and it is now measured very precisely. I got to rethink if they really wear so fast  :-X  ::)

That 2mm toe in is must have at finnish roads with 235 wide tyres so can't be without it

Camber would be choice adjustment for roads , hence the name.

1°10 is perfect Omega camber.

Zero toe is required because poly vertical bushes significantly alter the way the wishbone behaves during turns.

Agreed and even that’s considered ‘sporty’ by some for a comfy type car.
