    I have a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix with 205k miles and ever since I owned the car (170k miles) there has always been a problem with the suspension. It feels like the car does not have any suspension at all. I can feel every small and large bump in the road. Almost like the struts are bottoming out or something.

    I have already tried bouncing the car to see if the springs/shocks were going bad but the car just returns to normal height with minimal bounce.

    I have inspected the(front) suspension and noted some problem areas:

    Sway bar on one end is cracked and the other end is missing a small chunk.

    Passenger side control arm rubber bushing is loose.

    Passenger side bottom motor mount has deteriorated

    Here are some videos of the suspension.
    Please keep in mind I know there is ALOT wrong with this car. I have no clue how much longer it will last which is why I am not looking to spend a lot of money replacing everything. I am only trying to find the source of the bumpy ride.
