Default Does your car sway side to side on the highway?

I noticed that my car sways side to side on the highway like wind is hitting it but it doesn't make sense. It's never really windy here in San Diego and our CRV (mini SUV) doesn't even sway in high wind areas but the TT seems to do it a lot.

Is it the wind or something far worse? It's not subtle either it feels like the TT was hit by a large gust of wind.

Default Yup...they're stock but only 40K miles on them. They feel fine everywhere else.

Default Likely shot w/ 40k. A whole new world opens up with a good set of shocks and springs....

...I switched to the Bilstein / Eibach combo at about 27k miles...wish I would have done it about 20k sooner. It's one of the best mods you can do. :-)

Default Frankly, I didn't notice my car getting sloppy until like 75K with stock shocks.

Really depends on how you drive, how hard you drive, distances, your local terrain, etc. But yeah, once they got sloppy, boy did they get sloppy. I need to put some new stuff on soon.
