Suspension & Budget... how do I cope?
Ok, I'm at 179,xxx miles.
The car floats funkily and doesn't feel very surefooted, even with my big fat wide tires.
I want the car to feel solid again, like it's firmly on the ground and actually connected to the road, and not make all kinds of nasty noise whenever I go over a large bump or hit a dip.
I am thinking I at a minimum, need new shocks front and rear, and might probably even need new springs.
I am also on a very tight budget-- what should I do to get the car to feel decent again?
