Make sure you have a metric tap with the correct pitch.

you guys are right. i just do not have the correct tap for it. when i tested it the car felt better but the wobble is still there. guess i need to do the other mounts as well.

but i did look at the brakes today. man is it humid out there!!!

backs are fine checked the adjustment and was just fine. and no squeak.

put it down listened up front and squeak. so i took the pads off reapplied the grease cleaned the pads on both sides. when i was buttoning everything up i heard the squeak!!! and the car was not moving far at all!! ok had my friend listen he heard it up front. then i sat in the car and SQUEAK! ok not the brakes!! i thought suspension issue!!

was pushing down and it squeaked, ok is it struts?? nope got the right bounce out of em. hmmm the donuts!!!!

ok think that is solved!! hhhmmmm can the donuts cause the wobble as well?????

oh did i say it is HUMID out there???

If you mean rear lower control arm bushings to be donuts, yes they can cause problems

not raining in early am. got changed to work then DOWNPOUR. then it stayed that way most of the day. just tightened the 21mm to the chassis during the rain. it moved a little. lets see if that stops the squeak. then again it was real humid but was no longer home to jack up the car and do some more. man this summer has been tough!
