Hi ya'll. I've got a 96 I've had since she was born. Shes starting to have some problems 120,000 miles. Getting a new headliner next week. Otherwise, Interior is perfect. Big plans to keep her all original barring new paint, same color. Just have to start on all these little repairs. Speedo stopped working yesterday. Have something clunking around in my steering wheel. Gonna try to address that today. Right now battery detached to remove airbag...I hate waiting.

Welcome to Infamous.

Sounds like you have some suspension issues. An easy diagnose would be to take it to someplace like Midas for a front end alignment. If anything is messed up, they will tell you. Then, you can either pay them to do it, or tell them you don't have the money for it right now, take it home, and do the work yourself.

The 1996 only has the KA24e 4-cylinder engine. Correct? If that were the V6, I'd tell you to take it in for the Timing Belt service at 120k miles.
