Rear Sway

Well lately my e30's back end does not seam as tight as it should. If i am going around a corner and hit a bump at speeds (100km+) it feels like the body is swaying while the axel is planted. is there anyway to get a firmer ride and not have any of this sway. I hope it is fairly easy to understand.
