The last thing I did prior to trading the car was reinstall the stock dampers, strut bearings, mounts, and associated hardware. The noise got worse after reinstalling the factory bits.
Zillon ,when you unhooked the endlinks on the front sway bar how did the car handle ?did you notice an increase in side to side movement(rocking),or any changes in handling on your test drive. thanks
