Default Rear end out of allignment and sway

I noticed today that my back wheels are not even from side to side. One side sticks out further then the other. Ive also noticed that if Im riding down the road and I gun it and let off, it feels like the back end sways to the right. Actually it feels like the whole car sways. Any Idea what could be loose, or what would cause the tires to be off center?

04 Mustang GT, 5 speed. 4.6 liter. Thanks for any help.

How many miles? If it has a lot the bushings in the control arms could be shot. Also check to make sure the torque boxes aren't cracked.

Its got 130,000 miles. Where are the torque boxes? How would that make the rear wheels off center?

Yup, your right. All the bushings are shot. Thanks.
