Car feels wobbly/unstable/bouncy even driving on flat road.
Hey guys. My car wobbles almost or feels bouncy and unstable. LOL I know, confusing huh. I can't really explain it but it just doesn't feel safe. I'm on flat roads when i drive it, just up and down the block and it still feels bouncy.
Well the shocks are Billstien i dont know much more then that and the coilovers are ground control set like at 3.5in drop almost.
Here is the thing guys. A while back I was working on my car. I had swapped the motor in and then I went out the test drive it up and down the block. The car starts making a clicking noise and then the front left of the car drops. I was scared as ****, even though I was just in the neighborhood and there was no immediate danger like getting hit from behind, it was a crazy experience. I look under the car and the nut for the lower ball joint is off, and the ball joint came out of the LCA and the entire tire was butterflied like / and it fucked up the fender. It was real crazy. And then I fix everything, replace the ball joint because it was messed up. And I test drive it and it feels wobblish and **** like I described.
So I guess it could be a host of factors, the shocks fucked up, maybe the tie rod got stretched out or something when the tire popped out. I just dont know.
Luckily it's not a daily driver, just a project so it isn't something that needs to be fixed immediately. But for now I just want to isolate the problem so i dont go out spending money on things I didn't need.
Yea i know what u guys are thinking, I shoulda told u the first time i posted how this happened lol.
Do you have bumpstops in there??? When you lower your car you need to cut them in half, if not the car rests on them, or bounces off of them with minimal road imperfections... This causes crazy unestability and bouncing.
