    So for a while I had been feeling something that I couldn't quite describe, It felt like it was coming from the front left of the car usually would start too feel it at around 30-35mph an it would stop anywhere between 40-55mph. I first thought it was something to do with wheels/ suspension so I...

    I want to upgrade to ES poly bushings, but ride quality and (mostly) cost are a concern. Is it possible to just replace the front control arm bushings and leave the backs OE rubber? Would that screw with handling/alignment? Has anyone done just front (or rear) only?

    Have any of you wondered what inside the door looks like? You can find some info from DC13's post here, but what about past that? I had some dents in my door I needed to knock out, so I decided to take it apart tonight. After taking the sheet metal plating out, you'll be left with what looks...

    I've got a 2006 GT with 125K/mi that has developed an inconsistent rattle in the back at lower speeds or on city streets "with character" aka potholes and patches every 6 inches. Sometimes it's nonstop, other times it's infrequent, and thankfully it always goes away at highway speeds. The...

    Ok, so i was going down the road, cruising on 40, and out of nowhere literally my car starts to violently shake, as if the wheel was falling off, like a horrible brick road. I wasn't too far from my house, so I got it there, saw my boot was cut open. So i replaced my right axle with one from...

    I'm thinking about getting projectors for my 4G, but I don't like the aftermarket ones that are offered. They look cheap. The last time I bought projectors, I paid ~$200 for them, and the projectors kept coming loose from the housing, and the alignment pegs were plastic and didn't want to align...

    Hey Everyone, I was searching but couldn't find an exact answer to my question. I am looking at ordering the Megan EZ Street Coilovers to lower my car.

    So about a week and a half ago, I dropped my car on Tein H tech springs and all the wheels did a negative camber as expected EXCEPT the driver side front. The driver side has a slight positive camber and I can't figure out why. I took it to get alignment and the guy at the alignment shop said...

    So I just recieved my s techs in the mail and i plan to do them next week. I have done some research and some people are saying that when you lower your car camber bolts help align your tires for even wear. True? if so how much positive or negative camber will I need with my 2.5 drop. Not a fan...
