Not having a lot of luck are you?!
Short answer is a no from me however I can recommend the well known & respected Pro-Grip 12 Central Park Ave, Larbert FK5 4RX.
Best suggestion I can muster is pick a weather-watched day to book in, and let John work his magic.
At least you could use some of the epic roads home to "test".

Well I'm local and retired so it's entirely possible I can meet you there and whip you over to an adjacent Garden Center for a coffee while it takes John his usual hour.
There's nowhere for you to go.
Let me know.

TBH, it can vary but I'd budget between £60/£70 quids tops.
Frankly, given so much of the "speed being in the chassis" with our cars, I've always considered laser an important "modification"

Defo something i think that needs done as had it out and about a couple of times and felt the back end even just going over small bumps felt a bit 'twitchy' even though i wasn't pushing it so certainly wont do any harm getting it checked out

Could be a number of things eg tyre "mix" & pressures , the common enough one being duff drop-links, or even tired bushes/shocks depending on age & condition.
Without being alarmist, a cracked spring can hide it's sins as they can go at the seating.
Ask me how I know. :shock: These 5 chassis are unforgiving insofar they are either right on the button, or "not very good"!
Anyhow a ramp session by an expert is the best way forward.
