Well,

As most of you might or might not know it's been raining in the South East for the past weekend and such the roads around here are pretty much my car rides real loose on the roads and I don't like that at all, it makes me feel insecure about taking someone somewhere (even doing the speed limit or below it).

Then I rode in my step moms BMW and it felt real smooth, real 'stuck' to the ground like and I didn't have to worry about anything messing up.

My tires are fine; I've only done a 2-3 second burnout on them at a local gathering to piss off a little civic who was trying to dump the clutch burnout! :p And they are the expensive Michelin ones (although I'm thinking about going nitto/toyo when I get new rims, are they any good?).

Will dropping my car get me stuck to the ground more, different shocks, what?

Thanks guys for the help in advanced

Thanks,
Eric M. Pelezo

Mine is the same way, I've just learned to live with it.

Me too. But I've noticed that when you have to, even the stock suspension is pretty sticky if it's got some good tires on it. Lowering the vehicle will get you a lower center of gravity, which may help. But a stiffer spring/shock combination is another /great/ way to make the car feel more "solid." Just do some searching and I'm sure you'll find something within your budget/needs.

Well,

I might possibly have a full time web job thanks to someone seeing McBrides site! So what spring/shocks do you recommend.

Also, what other things could I do?

Check your rear bearings. When both sides are going out it is a handful to drive mine also had some noise every now and then. Uneven roads will be worse since the rear wheels tend to want to adjust to the pavement(steering the car from the rear) with the flex available due to bad bearings.
2 new bearings and hubs changed my car from a 2 hands on the wheel to feeling like it is on rails.
