I as out for more of an extended drive this afternoon. My goodness, what a difference having the front suspension reworked and adding low profile tires on bigger wheels has made. This thing sticks its nose into a turn and it feels like it's just dragging me and the rear end along for the ride.
But, there's always a but, I now notice that the occasional "pop" I'd get from the rear end is doing it in every turn that I take with speed. I suspect that it's due to worn out suspension back there and I have new springs/shackles on order but I'm curious if there might be another cause. Anyone ever experience anything like this before? Opinions on what might be causing my pop? Whatever it is is physical because I can feel it through the floor when it happens.
FYI, at the suggestion of Mary Pozzi, I pulled the rear sway bar a while back and the pop is still there so it's not that.
