I have some new Monroe shocks and I will likely put them in this weekend. The old shocks are leaking oil, so they are at least part of the problem.

Well I just replaced the rear shocks. It is a pretty simple task. The old shocks were clearly bad. There was oil leaking from both of them.

I noticed a difference right away.

I haven't yet done a thorough test but I am confident I have the problem solved. The difference is quite noticeable in just driving around city streets.
