When I am slowing and am at low speed almost the car car completely stops, I can hear and feel a bumping from the front somewhere. I have pretty much ruled out anything in the brakes, and everything in the front end seems OK (as it always does whenever there is a problem). Anyone else have any problem like this? Oh yeah, it does not feel like warped rotors, and I also machined those recently (my twice-a-year rotor turning).

Forgot one thing. Anybody notice if the V6 handles better than the V8? My car runs circles around my dad's V8, same year, but I do have 235/50R15 S-rated Indy 500s, as opposed to his stock 215/70R15 junkelins. But I have heard people say their V6 outhandles their V8. Just wondering. Gives me a good reason to brag about having a V6, lol.

Check your strut rod bushings. If it's one bump each time you slow down, I'd check those. If it's multiple in succession, check everything else lol. Typical stuff to check: strut rods, Lower control arms, upper control arms, balljoints, sway bar end links (those could also likely be the culprit). Hope this helps

Like I said, the front end is tight, and the bushings look ok. However they do have 10 yars and 152k miles on them. I might just end up having to rebuild the front end. I am just posting for this because I don't know what it could be (multiple bumps, by the way), and don't want it to be a safety issue.
