    right rear thudding/wheelhopping

    everytime i burn out, doughnuts, slide corners, take off fast/launch my right rear of my car makes this awful thudding sound and it wheelhops on that side like crazy.

    when i go over a hill fast eough that my suspension drops, somthing on the right rear rubs.


    Im thinking a bad shock, what do youall think?

    Sounds like a bad damper (shock), worn bushings, or a combo of both.

    How many miles on your car?

    Any suspension mods, etc?

    75K miles. It definitly shouldnt wheelhop, and it only wheelhops on the right rear. My glasspack COULD be the culprit for the thudding tho.


    No mods to suspension.

    maybe your shock is dying...
    I'd get some rear shocks and solve the issue.
    Bilstein HD 3rd gen will work well on a stock 4th gen setup.

    id love some bilsteins but i think im gonna pick up a used stock rear set for cheap and see if that fixes it. I got plenty of time, within a couple of weeks its gonna be parked for MONTHS. Its getting the calipers powdercoated/polished, and new front pads and the front rotors will prolly get machined, unless i decide to drop $200 into ws6store's crossdrilled/slotted rotors. AND A OIL CHANGE!!

    Id really like to put some money into LT headers before my suspension.

    save th $ from the x-drilled/slotted rotors... get them plain... better performance, less $.

    Darn, I just did an upgrade to my SHOCKS AND SPRINGS on my SS.
