Be careful with the parts. They are from a base. The muffler shows it. The suspension and transmission parts aren't the same. Whether they are the same vintage may also affect how useful the pile is!

If you do your own wrenching, which isn't hard, regular service will be dirt cheap and repairs will only cost the parts. That is, ignoring the expense of buying tools, if you don't have any.

It's not the arms that are under dimensioned, its the ball joint at the chassis end. A beefier version just adds unsprung weight.

Its the front motor mount. When it gets worn and under strong acceleration, the exhaust makes contact with the chassis and gives exactly this rattle. It could also be one or both transmission mounts.

If the spoiler warning light comes on when the ignition is turned on and then goes out, and doesn't come on when you drive over 75 MPH, the spoiler is working properly.

So lets get serious.

When I have heard a sound that has a gulpy ring it has come from the A/C. My theory is that when you shut off the A/C pump the high and low pressure sides equalize in the...
