I know. I saw that too...are there bushings or such I should buy? I'd just put on new air shocks right before I took the pics, so the ass end is WAY up high...kinda looked cool!

But, I agree...

thoughts?

The rubber bushing portion of the link is probably not tooo bad. but the outer tie rod ends are most likely shot.you live in Kansas,it snows,theyre shot. disconect one and move the ball stud and see.Its a pet peeve of mine that the rear end of a front drive car is tip top.the rear linkages and mounting points affect the ride more than you know.
i dont know if there are individual small parts available for the rear.RidzRiv might be having the same issue.ill call raybestos and moog,see if they have a solution.otherwise ya gotta buy the whole part from the dealer.

just had car aligned though...they didn't mention wear. I did want them to fix the wobble I get on sweeping left turns...but they couldn't find it...and after the proper alignment I don't know if it's still there.

I live in Missouri! Kansas is close though.. smile

We only had 3 inches of snow last year...can you believe that? 44" the year before and it's f'ing HOT and dry this summer...

wobble on sweeping turns = please check the sway bar links and bounce the corners of the car to check for bad struts/shocks - funny noises/clunks = probably need to replace.

huhaaa so i replaced my mufflers with magnaflows ( by the way Summit has a deal, if you buy a magnaflow muffler, your entire order is free shipping!). anyways i spent an extra 50 bucks for next day delivery, they are 14 inches long ( not including inlet and outlet) 9 inch wide and 4 inches thick, the diameter in and out is 2.25 for BOTH mufflers. hopefully that wasnt too small of a diameter ( since i have both mufflers), it isnt loud at all , i think. i can barely here it inside the care and there is NO drone, none, nada. btw this is the first mod ive done to this car since i bought it in june.

PostSubject: Aero Turbine XL Muffler with Built-In Resonator   FAQ: Mufflers? - Page 10 EmptySat Feb 16, 2013 1:12 am

What do you all think of this?
http://www.verociousmotorsports.com/Shop-by-Category/Mufflers/Aero-Turbine-XL-Muffler-with-Built-In-Resonator
FAQ: Mufflers? - Page 10 Media
FAQ: Mufflers? - Page 10 Media
FAQ: Mufflers? - Page 10 Media
Revolutionary Design

The Aero Turbine XL is a straight thru design, high performance muffler that features a built in resonator for added sound suppression. The company spent over three years in research and development to design a muffler that uses the principles of thermodynamics to reduce EGT's, increase horsepower, torque, fuel economy, and reduce engine wear and tear. With its fully welded 304 Stainless Steel construction, the Aero Turbine XL is nearly indestructible. Weighing in around 10 pounds, the Aero Turbine XL is a natural choice for the performance minded enthusiast.
FAQ: Mufflers? - Page 10 Media
As the exhaust stream enters the Aero Turbine XL muffler, it expands to fill the cylindrical chamber. This expansion slows the exhaust stream, creating a lower pressure at the inlet which causes a scavenging effect similar to that of a header. The exhaust stream is then split via an airfoil cone with an orifice similar to a conical jet engine. The outer stream accelerates to a higher velocity as it flows around the cone and has a lower pressure than the core stream, which is traveling at a slower velocity, and a higher pressure. The two streams are reintroduced via perforations in the center core. The high pressure inner stream is initially drawn out of these perforations as the gas attempts to equalize the pressure differential between the two streams. As this occurs, the change in direction of the exhaust stream causes destructive interference, which deadens the sound. As the pressure is equalized towards the rear of the canister the exhaust gas is pushed back through the helically arranged perforations in the center core, which spin the exhaust stream, causing additional sound cancellation, reducing turbulence, and creating a vortex that enables the gas to more efficiently exit the muffler. This revolutionary design has been tested and proven to flow more exhaust gas than straight pipe!

This would net me at least an additional ~40HP. Right? laughat

These guys are into it.

The description is (probably permissible) marketing hype. Gas flow is largely regulated by size of outlet.

Basically to me the design looks kinda like certain horn mutes that jazz performers use with trumpets.

Ought to ask for gas flow and sound attenuation specs.

Aero Turbine XL is just a muffler, so it is actually supposed to go here.

PS - I wasn't the one who gave you the neg.

PostSubject: Walker Quiet Flow 3 Mufflers w/Tips   FAQ: Mufflers? - Page 10 EmptyTue Aug 27, 2013 2:37 pm

Hi, next project now is replacing Rusted-out mufflers on my '95 SC Riv.
Anyone with experience with Walkers Quiet Flow 3 Mufflers which include the Tips? Looks like they look close to stock from pictures I could find.
Really not much info I could find on them. Flow well, sound good, or recommend a different muffler/tips?
From other info I could, the original stock exhaust from the converter back on the SC '95 seems to flow well enough for the H.P. the engine makes.

Anyone have experienced corsa performance yet on here? And suggestions on resonators? My previous experience has made me very hesitant with exhaustion lol

Yep, Jason has a Corsa system on his 98.

http://rivperformance.editboard.com/t7775-corsa-exhaust?highlight=corsa

I think he has some links to videos in that thread, and it seemed pretty loud to me, so much so that he actually got a ticket.

But then he fitted some resonators in the tips which he mentions quieted it down quite a bit.
