I do have an occasional drip here and there.
I have been thinking about replacing my shocks as I figure they are probably worn, but I can't really tell as the car is so stiff it doesn't bounce at all.
If I go with an aftermarket performance shock how does the "sport" button stiffen them? Or does it?
I don't think the sport button has anything to do with the shocks. I believe it has to do with transmission shift points (holds gears longer), the aggressiveness of shifts, and throttle response.
