I would have to agree.

1. I fought dealers and alignment shops about my front tire wear. I took the advise of others and replaced the radius rod bushings. That's when I found that my left side was blown out! Not long after Mike White found my strut bushings torn at 19K. They were so bad they kept them as an example.
2. I had to replace my tires at 12K. Never knew my rear springs was sagging so bad till I was bottoming out on a full tank. I replaced the rear springs and gained 2 1/2" or so in the rear.

All in all I've replaced all four springs (0" drop), strut tower bushings/bearings, front radius rod bushings and the swaybars. The car drives straight again, great tire wear, and feels like a sports car. The ride is stiffer now. But so much better.

Mike White is a cool guy and he knows his ****, I will be making the changes you have soon.
