Too much drifting is no good

I think my car is taking the toll for the recent rain driftings. The rear suspension is making weird noises.

Check your strut mounts and rear bushings. Some times the wear out and you hear metal hitting metal. I have the problem now. Check the mounts first.

And if it is your sub-frame or you haven't had a failure yet and are worried you can reinforce the subframe. See below.
