That's what's bugging me here. There's no way I'm sinking several thousand more dollars into this car, but what if I'm only a few hundred away? Like I previously said, I think my best course of...

I have noticed a good amount of squeaking from my shocks when going over speed bumps or other uneven surfaces at lower speeds. I suppose it's always a possibility that they could be going bad as...

Oh for sure. I've taken tight on ramps hard enough at speed to get the back end kicking out a bit and no vibrations at all then. I think I'm gonna talk to my shop tomorrow about getting the sway bar,...

I feel you there. I hate replacing without upgrading, and usually upgraded is cheaper than OEM anyways with our cars.

The Eibach upgraded front sway bar looks pretty cheap, although I have no...

I've already upgraded to the ECS aluminum LCA's with poly bushings, no help with the shaking, but my turn in does feel a lot nicer.

I've been told by the current shop I'm using that the axles/drive shafts look good, that was his initial guess on what my problem was. Wheel bearings are my next part I'm considering replacing...

I've done everything you've listed except for the hubs/bearings and struts. Literally racked up thousands of dollars of repair bills in the process, no end in sight. Everyone talks about what fun...

Where are you getting the price of $79 for 4 TPMS sensors? Everything I've seen is marginally more expensive than that. I'd spend 80 bucks to turn a light off and not be the butt of everyone's VW...

I see, kinda what I figured. I just hate the idea of running the TPMS sensors when they have no real purpose for running tires that require a higher pressure anyways. The XL rated Pilot Super Sports...
