Got a few suspension concerns...

My base bird is starting to show its age a bit, and the suspension is getting sloppy. If anyone could give me a little insight before I start replacing parts, that would be great.

At speeds past about 50 mph, the whole car vibrates pretty bad. The rear end tends to feel like it's floating on me, and there are times when I get some nasty oversteer. The car also tends to bottom out easier than it should (I was running a paper route in some rural-ish areas and ran into that a lot). I also get a popping noise from the passanger side. I notice it mainly during a turn.

I replaced the shocks and front sway bar links. What should I look at next?

The popping in the rear sounds like sway bar end links. ive replaced mine twice already. Also sounds like youve got some shot bushings back there too. Check that stuff out and see what you find.
