    first few miles on snows after bug eye suspension bushing upgrades

    Rough. really rough. after rolling smoothly on my summer tires until a few weeks ago I noticed right away after mounting up my winter tires that I went from driving a sporty hatch to a paint shaker. several remounting/balancing/ checking for a bad tire and or bad hub bearings later I am still left with a odd intermittent rolling vibration.
    this is the first season with my winterforce's(225-50-16's on stock wheels) with nearly every bushing upgraded. anyone else have the same happen when the snow tires come out?
    the new bushing list looks like this.
    sway bars front and rear, energy suspension
    front control arms, energy suspension.
    rear trailing arms, energy suspension
    tic klunk killer kit, soft
    trany x mount, tic
    most likely not important but a torque solution pitch stop.

    lateral link tic(soft)bushings staring me in the face every time I walk into the garage sitting on the bench.


    thanks guys

    Weird...I always looked forward to winter tires when I had my STI because it made the car hurt my kidneys less (I was on Coilovers and only 3 inches off the ground)

    Yeah I prefer the comfort of winter tires over summers as well. I am actually debating on removing my tic klunk killer kit...i got the race version and Im tired of all the NVH....
