Got my car back after a week in the shop for various odds and end repairs (Mr. Luos - I had the same problem you had with the turn signal except mine was the right front. I had them put in a new lens assembly I bought and they spliced in a new socket, mine was too far gone) so I decide to take a drive down the Parkway to the Shore to see how she's running. Before I know it, I'm crusing along @ 80 - but so is a lot of other traffic! A guy in an older Acura CL (?, the little 2 seater V6) decides he's going to try to run with me so he pulls up in the next lane. Well, when I get to a straight stretch of road I take it up to 110 real quick. He tries to keep up with me but he backs off @ 95. Good try, but here's my problem: @ 110 with a cross wind of about 20 - 30 MPH the car starts feeling REALLY light! I turn the wheel to try to keep in lane because of the wind but boy, the car feels real dicey - it doesn't want to respond! I back off the gas to bring it back to 80 but for a few moments there it was a** pucker time. What can I do further to the car to help keep my shorts clean? I already have SFCs, a STB, tubular rear LCAs. It's a T/A, non WS-6 with stock 16" wheels. You think better ground effects would help? I haven't lowered the car due to driving clearance problems.
