2006 VUE 3.5L
2007 ION-2 Sedan
Default 2006 Saturn VUE 3.5L Going all aftermarket!

Ok so I just changed the ball joints the other night with my mechanic, and I greased them as well, and I have to say things are alot tighter and bumps dont rattle me as much...but it still is not taking bumps like when it was new 50,000 miles ago, and that is my goal here! Here is the suspension stuff I have changed so far, and someone give me suggestions on what I still need to change to get that smooth ride back again!

-Struts and Mounts (Monroe)--seemed to do hardly anything except get rid of some clunking noise. I kept the original springs.
-Sway Bar ENd LInks(Moog)--tightened things up, handling much better
-Ball Joints(mevotech)--tightened things up, improved handling, and dampened bumps someonewhat.

Things I still plan on doing:

-Tie Rod Ends
-Back Shocks

------IF you guys can think of anything else that will help me here, I would be indepted to you for life. I remember when I got this thing awhile back, I could go over potholes and barely feel anything, what the hell happened haha, this sucks!
