: 01 2.8 vibration when slowing (not brakes)

10-31-2011, 11:47 AM
When I'm slowing from about 30 km/h to a stop (and this only gets severe after driving for an hour or so) the whole car starts shaking. There is a clunking noise. It's been to a mechanic 3 times.. they have told me it's the exhaust striking the car. I am hesitant to believe them though because when this rumble happens its surprisingly violent.
The car just got new control arms throughout the entire front end, and new springs in the rear.. this hasn't helped. Other new things are: front (driver side) CV joint axle, new tires on the front end (would small the size difference from wear be throwing things off?)
Any help would be so appreciated!
