Thumbs up

The noise I believe I am hearing is a sping bottoming out accompanied by a small vibration that I feel in the brake pedal. My car has 86,000 miles on it and to my knowledge has had no suspension repairs. Has anyone else experienced any similar issues or who can point me in the areas I should inspect?

The roads are horrible where I live. That is the speed limit. When it is dark you cannot see. Any more dumb questions from a "TECH FORUM!"

I have not had a chance to look yet, but my next oil change and rotation I will have the car in the air to get a better visual of my suspension components. I will follow up at that time.
