Well get my car back tomorrow from having the subframe fixed. If you think you have this happing to you, get it fix as fast as you can. I drove on mine for close to six months and was told that it was one of the worst ripped up rears they had ever scene. They had to cut the floor on the inside of the car to fix it right ( 95% of the time it can be done from the under side) They had to weld a plate on the top of the mounts be for they could weld in the new reinforcement plates.
The flip side to all this is I was told that it looks like my car has been very well taken care of over the years (93 155k on it) as they found all sorts of new bushings and other parts that they would replace at this time that where already new
