    You probably have a broken sway bar link (or links) or possibly a bad strut mount. A proper inspection should have revealed this and been addressed. Somebody sold you struts your car might not have needed. Get a second opinion.

    Fishing King,
    Give us a call mention repairpal and we'll give you a free inspection. I also suspect sway bar links or strut mounts to be the problem.
