+1 here on crooked backstroke.

I thought it was mostly out-of-whack arms that was doing it for me, but one of the lifeguards at my pool pointed out that my hips were sort of wiggling out of line -- they weren't rotating the same way my shoulders were. Don't know if that's happening to you, but I thought I'd mention it because I don't know if I would have noticed it myself.

The crookedness improves when I'm streamlined and aware of rotating around my core and not reaching outward with my entry arm/hand.
