    Slamming sound upon acceleration

    Just about every time I step on the gas to accelerate I hear a loud slam under my car. Sounds like its coming from the U joint in the drive shaft. Any thoughts?

    I had to have the driveshaft on my 06 replaces at about 20K. Could be U joints or the driveshaft. Mine sounded like someone pounding under the back seat right under the hump. Been fine ever since.

    Differential bushing is known to wear out quickly in these cars. I have replaced mine twice in 85k. The second time I put in the urethane one from creative steel and used their tool to do it so that I could handle the job myself and save the $800 the dealer wanted. Highly recommend the upgrade even if yours is okay.

    I did what BlownV did when I bought a new drive shaft. Highley recommend for anyone trying to have fun in these cars.
