[DML] Re: Lowering the front end / New springs

Finding parts in the driveway is "not a good thing". That "U" shaped
thing is probably one of the shims (washers) from a trailing arm bolt.
It probably loosened up, stretched, broke, or bent. In any case it is
now dangerous to drive the car. You need to get a set of trailing arm
bolts and have the car aligned by a good shop capable of a 4 wheel
alignment. Wouldn't hurt to also order a kit of shims. Before you go
planning upgrades or changes to your suspension system you really
should get the car into good operating condition. You may find you are
happy with the stock stuff as long as it is working correctly (a lot
cheaper too). Another thing to consider when lowering the car is
getting in and out of driveways. You may scrape and get caught in
dips, curbs, and potholes. Depends on how the roads in your area are,
around here (NYC area) they are BAD.

bouncing , like its going to fall off when I hit bump.  I'm preparing
to replace the shocks, but this problem of the wheel literally moving,
seems like more than a shock. Trailing arm bolt?
