    XLR rear end hops over bumps

    Mickeytee, Thanks. I'll see if I can get to the bottom of that. Z1, really?

    XLR rear end hops over bumps

    It's been a while since I've been on here. Took the car to a reliable mechanic and had F & R alignment done. Waaay out of spec. Weird how there was so little uneven wear on the tires but up close, we could see a very narrow (1/2") excessive wear on inside edge of all 4 tires. Handling is...

    Radio upgrade

    I read a lot of threads on this site about changing out the radio, then went to a local high end car radio shop and got a price range of $750-800. I'd lose the HU radio station and cd # display and they would replace the textured aluminum trim around the radio with black plastic (made me wonder...

    After market stereo

    I know I'm late to this thread but I was looking to replace the stock radio/CD unit in my '05 base but after reading and researching the options and going to the local high end car radio install guys (and their fairly reasonable - $850 - but still pricey option), decided I had nothing to lose to...

    XLR rear end hops over bumps

    In my first post on this subject, I mentioned the tires are Goodyear Eagle RSAs (P235/50ZR18) (not run flats) at 34 PSI with about 27k on them. I really appreciate the thinking on the infrared temp test on the tires as a way of determining camber and inflation. I never heard of that before but...

    XLR rear end hops over bumps

    I appreciate the comments guys but never intended to incite a riot. I will look into rear alignment first. After 58k miles on NY roads, it can't be a bad idea in any event. While they're doing that, I'll get a read on obvious suspension specs on the rear end anyway, which will point me in a...

    XLR rear end hops over bumps

    Yeah, I did the rear diffential lube thing two years ago. Big difference, particularly when backing. Pretty sure that isn't the problem. Thanks for the idea though.

    XLR rear end hops over bumps

    Thanks for the reply. Only about 500 miles since shocks replaced. It behaved this way before replacing them. I've not aligned rear although there isn't any odd wear on the rear tires. I doubt it was aligned before I bought it (2nd owner). Car has 58k miles on it now. I can feel the steering...

    XLR rear end hops over bumps

    New to this forum. I'm learning so pls forgive the neophyte in me. My '05 XLR hops over bumps here in NY (where we hope to some day have roads as good as the Oregon Trail in 1835). Sometimes at highway speeds, even on a straight, when encountering a moderate bump, the rear end will hop to the...
