Finally got the trans and snub mounts replaced. I can feel everyone of the horsepower in my pedal.

Well I found this lovely late Christmas gift this morning....



Looks like my "Needs Immediate Attention" is now:
  1. Replace windshield
  2. Get rims straightened
  3. Get winter tires mounted on said rims
  4. Get an alignment


I guess it really is true what people say about this car; there is no winning, there is just staying afloat.

I spent over $700 on a "picture window" in the front of my house only for the glass to crack the first winter six months later. It's still cracked and I'm still pissed off.

Does your car still shake? Bring it to an alignment shop and have them check everything. It could be a CV joint. I doubt it's a tie rod end or steering related since the steering wheel doesn't shake. It could be something off in the rear.
