Probably the swaybar end links, they seem to wear out fast on our cars. Other then that make sure you struts are tight, look at the nut on top just to be sure!

I have the same thing in Vegas, I have yet to see a single modded second gen other then mine. I know there out there, I just have yet to see one.

Swaybar links are very popular, like already mentioned above.

Also, the right side / top motor mount is also fairly popular, but when it goes bad you also get a bunch of vibration when sitting stopped in gear / engine running.
