I noticed when I was driving yesterday, that my car sways a lot on the highway. Its very, uncomfortable. I visually inspected for any broken links, or springs, saw none. Any suggestions? It has stock suspension, and is a 98 S.

How many miles on your struts? Maybe they're worn/blown, and you're basically riding on springs only.

169,xxx miles. Theres no visual leakage, and I did the bounce test on each, no excessive bounces. What about subframe bushings?

What's the condition of your tires (thread) & what air pressure are you running? :confused:

Bobby...

My MODding Journal
+1. The Foz is sensitive to tire pressures. Also, mine was doing this about a year ago (swaying and couldn't keep it straight), had it aligned and it all but disappeared. If it's been a while since your last 4-wheel alignment, I would highly suggest getting one done now.
