    suspension issues

    Turns out I got the dreaded strut rub on my passenger side. It ripped the tire up plenty good, however the driver side doesnt have a mark on the tire... i find that odd. Anyway, I pulled the strut mount off and it is indeed collasped. So i am ordering a pedders mount. The question however is, When taking the strut off i noticed the sway bar link was basically loose on the strut. The car was just flopping around. I checked the driver side and it was kinda loose too. Is this normal or is something else wore out? My car has 51000 miles on it, so should i look into replacing any other bushings either? Thanks guys.

    Yes do it with the Peddlers bushings. Look in the install documents at the beginning of our forum.
