New to me 190e....with some questions for ya

I have just purchased a pretty darn nice 1986 190e.....cheep...but have a few questions maybe someone could answer....or point me to an answer...First off...the car sways around on the road...from the rear....has new Pirelli tires on it....the condition goes away....or is much reduced with a passenger in the back seat....what gives with this ????....I bought it for my Girlfriend to drive...and it freakes her is very it's darting around on a heavily worn ( grooved ) road. Second....the blower motor is howling ( bearings ? ) there a fix....or is it a replace deal ?? Third....drivers seat is shot...not all torn up...just no support....and a broken spring that caught me in the pants....any swaps out there...or resources to repair or replace ?? As I get farther into this thing I'm sure I'll have more questions and things to wonder about....if I can ever get her out of it ...LOL....thanks in advance for the input...
