Default I thought my car handled good....

Untill I was putting new calipers on today and saw that the right front sway bar end link(or bushing or whatever) was sheared off the lower control arm. I just had to laugh, becuase it handled fine like that.
I went to advanced auto and got a set a moog (heavy duty) bushings and bolted them up,
now it feels much neater. not a huge difference, but enough to notice. The bushings themself are a blue hard plastic type of material.

I snapped a endlink last year. I kept thinking it didn't feel right. Then I noticed it was broke. Fixing it is easy. Glad you found it.

I thought it might have been the source of the front end clunk, but It wasent. Still trying to figure that one out..

Front end clunk is more than likely an engine mount or Strut mount.
