No doubt. When I did the Honda it had developed a weird ass-end squat. I only noticed it after following another Element down the highway and seeing it with the same condition. Certainly explained why the insides of the tires were wearing faster than the outsides. Ours was at 236k miles then

I feel like the ones on the Journey need attention as well. It's not really giving me problems so much as just really soft. Once it's loaded and I throw a bag or two of ice in the back I lose more than half my suspension travel. It bottoms out very easily at that point. I'm not gonna worry about it at only 92k miles though.
I've always had more time than money.
