    Re: struts

    I think it's more likely sway bar links.

    Re: struts

    I put the car up on ramps and i can wiggle the end links and i think i hear the same noise just not as bad as when i hit bumps but i also think the struts may be bad because if im on the highway and go over a bypass the front end will bounce for a bit.

    Re: struts

    My STS had 180K on the original struts and they made some noise. I replaced the sway bar links first (made no difference) then the struts (made some difference) then I tried the lower control arm bushings but the ones I ordered didnít fit. Does anyone know where to get aftermarket lower control arm bushing kit for a 01 STS? Donít buy this one it doesnít fit. http://www.performancesuspension.com...roducts_id=621

    Call Luke in Parts at Lindsay Cadillac over there >>>>>>>>> M-F, 9-5 EST. If anyone makes performance bushings he will know that, too.

    Re: struts

    They don't have to be performance just a standard bushing will work for me. That kit I ordered looked like the rear ones would fit but the front ones where over 10mm to small.
