I filled my windshield washer bottle. Then stood there and looked. Also did some tuning on a 98 GTP

Drove the 'Prix. Or rather, prayed for my life as the 'Prix tried to kill me.

Sounds like you're having as much fun with your Caddy as I am with my Pontiac.
I've been playing this game for the better part of 6 months.

I've found many popping and creaking to be a sway bar end link. Lower ball joints can also cause problems.

I've found loose sway bar bushings make for loose sway bar links. One often creates the other. I have to replace the ones in the GXP soon. The Hydraulics beat the **** out of them and I don't think the extended warranty will cover.
