Here's a question.... does the whole front end move up and down a lot? The Defender does suffer from a bit of bump-steer at times, if your front springs are worn or too soft, and the front end compresses a lot when braking, that could happen.

Check the bushings on the rear axle. Mine are worn and I get a little rear wheel steering when I lift off the gas.

I'm with Tyler, sounds like it may be worn bushings in the rear, didn't you just have them all replaced? Maybe something isn't tight? Thats the first and easiest thing to do, just crawl around and check that all the bushings are good and that the bolts are tight. Or maybe it's just too much mud on everything
