well i want to drive my car to work and stuff but dont really feel comfortable with the way it handles... going straight it seems fine but when cornering, it feels like the car is loose... hard to explain but seems like the body doesnt flow with the wheels... anyone know what im trying to say??? might be some crappy bushings and i still have to install some on this one too... any clue or help

crawl underneath the car and inspect the sway bar endlinks and bushings, if those are broke/rotted that might have something to do with it.

Look at your shocks and see if they leak.


Do the car "jump test" sit on the hatch and bounce up and down see how much the car moves, if its excessive your cars shocks are on the way out. My car would sit and bounce after you would jump off for like 30 seconds, it was crazy.

Mine were the most blown I have ever seen when I bought my car, it was scary to corner in.

Check wheel bearings. Go give all four tires a good shake. Are they moving?
