vibration (left rear)

i get a pretty bad vibration only from the left rear when i hit bumps or man hole covers, every thing underneath seems to be in place, i was thinking the shock is gone ,anybody got any ideas as to the problem, the car is lowered, and can you recomend a good set of shocks, so some one can sit in the back seat with out tire rub i was thinking air shocks that way if i have any weight in the back i can put some air in them to give me some clearence, is this a good idea or not..another problem my hood pops but one side sticks so it wont open, its driving me nuts, i spryed it with wd40 but its still a pain in the ass, any ideas or thoughts..

WD40 is a better cleaner then a lube.. use white grease or fluid film works great too

Send a message via ICQ to maverick
yea its good for power antenna rebuilds. white grease is about the best spray grease...if your trunk is sticking on one side I sugest you look on the roof of the trunk there will be 2 metal poles which help in opening the trunk(keep it open) they shuld be crossed it might have come out on the one side of the bracket. these ARE NOT EASY TO GET BACK IN. so if your not sure get some help. those poles are under a lot of stress.
good luck.

especially in a sunturd

I'm gonna start using synthetic motor oil for the antenna rebuilds.. maverick.. top yours off with motor oil after the WD40 sets in good.
