Besides the shocks, check the stabilizer links (sometimes called sway bar links). I don't know if your vehicle has them on the rear, but it does have two on the front, one on the left, the other on the right. They tend to rust out and break after 7 years or so. If you can determine what they are, they are rather inexspensive to fix and can even be done at home with a few basic tools with the parts obtainable at aftermarket parts outlets like NAPA and CarQuest.

If you cab is rocking and/or swaying from slightly rough terrain, then it is time to service your shocks and springs. Over time both shocks and springs weaken, causing the vehicles own weight to compress them.

Riding rough sounds like shocks.. but I dont think gran am has shocks.. could it be the moter mount that would make it ride rough and when you turn the stering wheel back and forth while driving it sways.


All cars have shocks and/or struts. Grand am has front struts and either rear struts or shocks. When these are worn, the ride would be rough. If a motor mount was bad, you may feel rocking or visually see the motor wiggle back and forth when you press and release the accelerator pedal. Motor mounts won't affect handling. Either shocks/struts, sway bar, stabalizer bar or links are the common cause

My Avalanche, when going appx 65-70 miles an hour rocks violently from side to side. If you go over a bumpy bridge at this speed, it will litterly hurt your neck and you have to hit the breaks immediatly...


you may have a bad or broken sway bar link, or the bushings. if the sway bar links break it will sway wildly especially on corners. on some vehicles they are hooked to " A " frame which is hooked to tire, this is why the tires go crazy. have a great day !!

What causes rocking side to side ,or swaying it does this parked or driving no noises just started to sway back and forth.1999 Chevy Venture


It sounds like you may have bad shock absorbers. It could also be the anti-sway bars are worn out, or broken. These are 2 components that could cause the problem you're having. Take it to a repair center, & have it put on a lift to see the full view of the undercarriage. That will let you see all the components at the same time.

Rocks sideways when driving, feel like you are on a boat


Have the shocks/struts ever been replaced? The rocking is normally caused by worn out shocks and/or sway bar bushings. When the shocks go, you normally will experience a rollercoaster type up and down motion when you hit bumps (the springs are bouncing and the shocks are not dampening/rebounding properly). If you do not have this up and down rocking, but just sideways, check your front and rear sway bar bushings for wear or damage to where they connect to the frame. If the mount has broken or come loose, it will not prevent the sideways sway. You should also see a sideways lean going around corners.
