    I always felt like something was wrong with the rear end.
    I got out of work right now. N I felt something different. I step on the gas n I felt like the whole diff was lose. I got out of the car I checked everything. I couldn't find anything visible.
    Nothing on the axles tires or anything lose.
    I got on the car again. N I feel the same.
    I step on the gas n I feel vibrations and something lose. Any ideas ?
    Broken control arm? Shocks?
    I didn't hit a curb or anything like that..

    +1. Take a look at all your rear suspension pieces including the lower control arms and panhard bar and brace. If you have a failed bushing or broken fasteners it could create the slop and noise that you have described.

    foud the problem.. never tought that could be the problm..
    the muffler was hitting the rear end.. that was tge reason why i felt something lose or hitting when i take off...
    when iwas goin to the shop, i made a u turn and i heard something something under the car very loud and then after that the exhaust noise changed.
    i pulled over to check. i noticed the muffler hanging down,,
    the exhaust pipe got cut from the area close to the axle....

    the whole exhaust setup is to old.. i have to get new muffler

    Yikes!!! But all-in-all, at least your problem was minor. A new cat-back system and you're good to go.

    Goat's right- you can get that fixed easily and even look at it as a great time to upgrade!

    If there's enough pipe, try to get a band clamp (3" ID to 3" ID clamp) and hold it together. It might have a little sputter leak to it, but it'll hold you together until you can either get the muffler welded in or until you plan your upgrade. Clamp should cost around $10 or so from Summit.
