Might have found the issue. 3 out of 4 sway bar bolts were finger tight... Fixing the air and I will report back if it fixed it.

How do you know when the Panhard bar and LCAs need replacement?
I mean, is it movement of the parts, visual or just driving feel?
When it comes to driving feel, I only know my car, never driven another F-body.

Mostly it's cracking in the bushings that tells you.

As for me, changing the tires and tightening the sway bar bolts fixed it. Drive great now.

Going to replace all of the OEM bushings and hope it helps the front end. It's not bad now but I hope for better. I am also going to replace the aftermarket wheels with 2000 17in WS6 OEM wheels, which should help.
