My 2010 SEL doesn't ride as well as it used to. Maybe because the steering and suspension parts are all original with 173K miles on them. However it does ride straight, no uneven tire wear, no strange noises, doesn't not sag on one side but the rear seems to sit lower these days. Pushing down on the body above each tire seems to be pretty stiff and it bounces back up HOWEVER......It does sway alot when turning and is real rough and loud over bumps "BANG". I also tow small trailers with it. I am researching what I should replace getting the ride back to a comfortable experience. I am planning on turning it over to my son when he gets his license and want it in the best mechanical condition. After a visual inspection, my thoughts are to replace: -Rear shocks, springs, sway bar links and bushings -Front strut/springs, sway bar links an bushings, upper/lower control arm I've priced all the parts on Rock Auto and realize the total investment I am looking for any advice on: -The best parts -What can to test to make sure I wont need to replace something, say like the springs -what to replace first in what order- rear or front first or all at once? -when to get an alignment Any advice is would be awesome!!
accordngs posted a topic in Brakes, Chassis & SuspensionHey all: In around End April to early May I purchased 22's for the Edge and quickly hated the wheel gap. I went ahead and installed the H&R lowering springs shortly thereafter with all new struts at the same time. It has only been about 3.5-4 months since installing the springs and I today noticed pretty bad uneven tire wear on the inside of the rears. It is already to the point that metal belt is starting to show through. Fronts seem fine so far. Obviously this shouldn't be happening this fast so I must have a camber issue. Just by eyeballing it, it isn't too bad but obviously that is not the case. So what have you guys done on here for adjusting the camber. I did a search and saw some people said no aftermarket kit was necessary and others went with the Eibach kit. Any input is appreciated as it will help me with my plan of attack before I blow a tire on the freeway. Thanks guys!
I took some pictures within a month or two of purchasing my 2011 last year so I decided to go back to the same area and take some more pictures in the same area showing as many of the changes as possible. Since the first set of pics, I have installed a custom exhaust (not shown), Eibach springs, 20% tint all around, and emblem changes.
