Okay, so when I drive on slick roads, I can't drive more than 40-50mph or my rear end will fish tail. Not only that, but when it's dry and I drive over uneven terrain... My whole car shakes back and forth. The ride is really crappy too. I'm running on stock tires/wheels now and a 1.8 in drop. Now these ideas came to mind. Minor problem could just be a reallignment after 20k miles. Minor problem could be that I have a 1.8 drop via progress springs. An average problem could be that my shocks/structs are going bad, of which i'm replacing with eibachs in the spring anyways. Another average problem could MAYBE?? be my sway bars or something out of whack. And a big problem could be that a control arm or other big suspension part is physically damaged. Anyone have any ideas? I plan on getting a reallignment, a new set of rims, rear camber kit, and a full eibhach shock/strut system in the spring. Also, last question, is it necessary to get a camber kit for the front or only the rear if you drop your car 1.8in?

What did you hit, and did you get the car checked out after you hit it?

i hit a pothole 13 months ago that bent a wheel so bad that I got a flat tire, and ordered a new wheel and had it remounted at my dealership, so unless they checked it then, no.
