Rides rough and bounces on highway when hitting 55+
2007 Buick Rendezvous 210,000 mi,
Struts and both outside tie rods caused a very rough ride. Got the diagnosis yesterday and was told it would cost close to $700. Can't do that right now, so riding down the road rough.
The whole suspension in the rear had to be replaced less then a year ago and its out again

Rides poorly and shakes when I brake over 60 mph...not fixed yet. Too expensive, weighing my options.

I thought the bouncing was due to cold weather. The ride is very rough.

Bought the car used, said the suspension was "repaired" but after driving it for aboutique 2 days the drive kept increasingly getting worse and worse. There are virtually no struts or shocks left, the car bounces horribly and if you hot even the tiniest of holes the whole car gets thrown to the side. Very scary to drive on the freeway.

Found out that they needed to be replaced awhile ago. Car had fewer miles than it does today--maybe 120,000/less Will do so when have the money to cover the cost of the repairs
