Hey every one.. I just got into a 1998 bonne SSEi not long ago.. I'm doing some upgrades, and custom things to it, but taking my time.. Its the only automatic car that I've actually enjoyed driving in a long time! So i plan on making it My #1..

Ive sone a few things to it, but mostly for looks and sound. Custom sound system, including a 13w7, 1600w sound and DVD player.. and custom rims.

Ive started upgrading brake parts.. wagner rotors and pads, drums and shoes are next.. new front hubs, sway bar bushings.

im getting a shake from the front end.. was pretty bad for a while, but after hubs, its alot better. looking to make it go away asap, so any suggestions...


Im a tattoo artist in in northeast Ohio, so let me know if any of you need some good solid tattoo work!

Welcome to the site. Does it shake more when your braking? I've seen several warped rotors on these cars. I new set is about $35 or so each.

Welcome to the forum!

Any time I've ever had a shake from my car, it was bad tires.

Thanks guys.. I'll put up a couple pics, i dont have recent ones.. but ill put up what ive got.

It shakes all the time. It WAS warped rotors, but i changer the rotors and pads, (Wagners) and i put on new hubs.. im going to put on new tires soon, the rims are definately not bent. I had an alignment a few weeks ago at Fireston (mistake).. they screwed it up the first time, somewhat fixed it, im going for another one in the next couple weeks..


Im also upgrading my alternator, adding a battery to the back, and doing the big three..

Welcome to the forum!

The Alternator, Second battery, and big three should make a big difference for the audio you have going. You may also want to consider the alternator sensing wire mod. You can find instructions here.
