This is not for my camaro, its actually for my 96 Ford Taurus [img]redface.gif[/img] Whenever I'm driving, for some reason it feels like all the tires are underflated. The car seems to "float" down the road and seems like it wants to sway when turning at semi-high speeds. I check the tread and air pressure in all four tires and everything seems to be in order. I don't know if this is normal for this type of car or not, but if notdo you all think that it might be time for a set of new shocks?

How are the struts?? Ever been replaced? Struts are not made to last 7-8 years.

The last time I drove a Tarus was like back in '95 and if I remember right the rack is set up so that driving straight, the road-feel is almost completely nonexistant!!

In other words, if I again recall right, I had to constantly imput a very slight amount of steering correction both ways b/c it floated at dead center at speed!!
Most disheartening after driving a stiff steering, non-power car...

BUT once I got used to the Company's Tarus S/W, I drove the wheels off it!!

A very nice road car indeed....Imho....

If the newer cars are different then please disregard my comments..
