Thnx zillion. I was thinking the same thing. One thing that has crossed my mind after reading here by another poster, is that the clunking issue is so random. So even if down the road i need to replace my shocks and struts i may get that problem even using oem parts. Yikes!

As for the tires i was looking at conti dws in 225/45/17 (now have 215/50/17)
In some reviews posters have mentioned concerns about soft sidewalls and tire failure with dws contis. Thoughts?

Then add a steeda rear sway bar which i dont think will be too large or stiff to negatively affect handling. Thoughts?
