    Handling Problems?

    My car isnt handeling like it should. It has a shimmy in the steering wheel, pulls to one side, and makes occasional funny noises. I have always had Koni Sport suspension and the new addition of a SLP Strut Tower Brace for $50 helped out some but not enough. Apparently the f-bodies can flex and twist so if this has happened to my car is it to late to fix it with sub frame connectors or can the sfc's along with a good front end alignment get my car back on track?

    Swap the rear wheels/tires to the front, then let us know if it still does it(shimmy).
    It also sounds like your car needs the "Toe" adjusted.
    As far as the funny noise?....What kind of funny noise?

    there is a noise in the front end when i go over bumps...it sounds almost like a bed creaking or something...has been like that since i got my car over 2 years ago and gets worse when the weather turns colder

    what's a toe adjustment?

    Bushings are going bad in the sway bar. Tie rod ends needs to be replaced most likely and get an alignment..

    this is from last night...
