Road Grooves Kill ME!

If it were me, I would replace all the sway bar bushings (6) and maybe the
inner control arm bushings (2). Even if this doesn't solve the problem, it
will help with the handling. After that, get the 4 wheel alignment. I also
replaced the sub frame bushings at about that mileage but the improvement,
if any, was subtle. HTH

I have an issue the I can't figure out, nor can a few mechanics who have
looked at my car. Grooves in the road throw the cars all over. I just
replaced the struts with BOGE turbo gas units, that did not help. There does
not sem to be excessive play in the ball joints. Can the rubber parts of the
front sway bars  make this  happen? They are definately worn don. What
should I replace to tighten the front end up. It is all original except for
the struts, and it has 110,000 mile on it. Thanks Grant Colorado Springs
