Fresh wash and wax. Turbo system is going to have to wait some time ad this is my dd and just found out I have a kid on the way. But because of that I will be doing brake and suspension mods to help better the ride and safety

Also don't mind the scratches in the rear one is from ice scraper and the others are from loading army gear in and out of the trunk

Congrats. Lucky you've got the perfect sized car for a baby/ child and don't need to buy something bigger!

PS: I don't know what tyres you're running, but if they're OEM that would be a good place to start for safety upgrades. I changed mine after having a "near miss" with my 5yo in the back, they just didn't have the grip to pull the Kizashi up. An upgraded rear swaybar is also an excellent upgrade for little outlay.

Yeah! In update New York the roads are really bad and practically have speed bumps on the highway which makes the rear squirmy. Front tires are Goodyear eagle ls2's rear are donlaps

Are you talking about the rear's behaviour when cornering at a reasonable pace, where it loads up and feels like it's "taking over control" of the vehicle due to the pitching? Get the upgraded swaybar ;)

No this is going in a straight line hit the bump and the rear wants to step out . Also found out my shocks are bad so that might be the problem

Yes, that would match up with your problem. I had the same thing on a 4WD many years ago - it wasn't much fun to drive on corrugated dirt roads. :shock:

The same sort of effect will happen as the rear end will lose traction over bumps.

PS: Possibly a terminology difference between countries - "4WD" is what you'd term an "SUV". It was an older type with manual transfer case to go from RWD to 4WD.
