Issues, shaky isues.

Hey guys. 2000 ZX3 zetec. i start the car and it vibrates the hell out of it. just everything. i know the 3 motor mounts atleast 1 is bad. i've heard the passenger will vibrate the most. so this is prob what's wrong. any comments and how hard are they and how expensive to replace. also my mechanic got up under my car and saw my sway bar had some issues. i need bushings so i should also get endlinks right? thoughts on my issues?

Do you get hella torque steer?

I'd spend the cash to do a full poly bushing replacement on all of your suspension components, and get a bolt kit while you're at it.

If you need motor mounts, and you want a smooth ride --get OE replacements, but I'd still get poly bushings to upgrade them with b/c the poly bushings will likely outlast your car.

After you replace any broken parts, and swap out all your bushings & bolts you'll need an alignment. If you do that odds are the only time you'll need to fix your bushings again is when the salt-god demands his rusty sacrifice of suspension componants.
