Re: Uneven Tread Wear...bumpyy Tread? Help!, 2000 taurus LX FFV
I would have to think that your diagnosis of worn suspension parts would be correct. The tire shop should have been able to tell you what needed to be replaced. As for replacement, you should be able to use whatever you want, as long as its meant to fit your car. Go to the parts shop and tell them what car you have and they will give you a list of different products that will fit. They will also be able to tell you the differences between products as well (ex: one has a longer warranty, one will give a smoother ride, one will handle better, etc). I've never heard of spring fatigue being a problem but I suppose it could be. Typically, if the car seems to be riding lower than normal, it could be because a coil is busted near the top or bottom (like on my T-Bird). After you complete your suspension work, take it to a tire shop and have them perform a four wheel alignment. In most cases, when you say you want an alignment, they will only perform it on the front tires. You may also consider taking it to a shop before you do any work and asking them to check it over for you before you go spending a bunch of money on it.
