    Hi guys, I lowered my car, have new shocks and struts, steering rack bushings, caster/camber plates, and new ball joints. Since doing these improvements I have developed a front end groan primarily when braking, but I notice it at low speeds if I turn and there's any chance in elevation of the road. I assume this is probably a bushing, but is there any sort of "test" or procedure to try and solve which one it is? If money was no object I would have a shop replace everything....but this is a budget build and I'm a broke recent college grad so that isn't an option. it's not high pitched, a squealing, or popping. A definite groan...sounds like an old boat or something.
