    I agree with that. I sort of feel that a rear sway bar that has some flex to it without breaking is the answer. It would work in unison with the rear axle.

    If my second one breaks, I may live...

    For a cheap car, the flexibility of the rear seats were amazing! They forever spoiled me. 32 second clip below shows you the difference. Makes Mirage rear seats somewhat lame by comparison. I...

    Thanks for sharing all that!

    For the money, I feel the 165/65r14 Federal tires are a good alternative to Dunlop Ensave tires that may cost 2-3 times more.

    Since this thread was started, I...

    To be fair didn't you change from a Mobil 1 oil filter to a cheap Champ oil filter @ the same time?

    If you did, it may be hard to know which variable may be causing more knock @ start up.
