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!!
sorry if this was posted somewhere else. anyway there is a rattle when starting off slow. its coming from the rear passenger wheel area. As the car starts out the clunking gets faster and it doesn't stay consistent with the spin of the tires just a gradual rattle. After 40-45 MPH it stops as if centrifugal force causes it to stop. It rattles and clunks when going over bumps and railroad tracks. It's a metallic rattle. I've looked underneath the car and to me it looked fine. The car steers fine and does not vibrate at all. It doesn't rattle in reverse or braking unless you hit a bump. Any help is useful thank you.
