Mine isn't just your average tramlining. Sometimes at low speeds it can require a ton of force to keep the car going in the desired direction. I know i whould feel a good bit of the road, but mine is excessive right now. I really think it has something to do with the strut mounts or the fluid that's in my car. I will FINALLY be able to change the fluid this Sunday because I'll be able to recruit my dad for help. Not many of my friends are car guys and I don't really trust em to help me so I don't ask. I can be an asshole to work with if it's my property that's being worked on and you don't know what you're doing.
