other than the suspension, what other factors contribute to a crappy ride? My ride is lowered on 18's, and recently have noticed my car being annoyingly loud when I drive. My only guess so far is that I need new tires, no doubt. How would I know when to replace my bushings, ball joints, bearings, control arm, etc...? Would these repairs make my ride much more smooth if I do?
Also, I've noticed a hissing, whistling sound accompanied by a rattle noise only when I first step on the gas. Another noise I've noticed while i'm between the speeds of 5-10mph, is a sharp like piercing sound like metal to metal grinding, but when I speed up it goes away.
used Any suggestions you guys can give will greatly be appreciated!
