    -warranty help-

    Ok so I have this 2 year extended warranty on my car that pays for ANYTHING bumper to bumper for $100 per visit. Now I need some help on figuring out what all needs to be replaced on my car. Here are my problems.


    -The car is lowered and everytime i hit a bump it "feels" like i bottom out HARD. its VERY hard to steer over bumps. are the shocks bottoming out?

    -I have an 02 sensor light on.

    -The front tires seem to angle a lil bit outwards on the bottom.

    -Everytime i downsift and press on the gas, the LOUD jerk comes from the rear. Its also happens when i suddenly go WOT in most gears.

    -Some of my gears grind. and are sometimes hard to put into gear.

    -Also there is like this metal scraping noise when the car is idling. Not to loud, but you can hear it. Is this the throw out bearing?



    thats all i can think of right now. there maybe more.

    thanks for the help in advance

    Stock shocks bottom out when you lower your car. The only solution is a set of aftermarkets or Bilsteins. As far as the rear noise, possibility the transmission mount may be shot. The tires have a slight camber but because you lowered your car, your suspension geometry most definately has changed and should be checked for proper geometry. The grinding is from worn synchro sleeves and rings and a shot mount may be the culprit as well. scraping noise could be from the tranny. Have it all diagnosed and find out what's going on. O2 sensor should be replaced
