Thanks guys - yes Jim, there's something about lifting the car off the ground and putting it back down. I'm still going to go with Steve B. and check out the shocks/struts and strut mount bolts. Again, is it uncommon to see shocks and/or struts go out at 50,000 miles? The dealership foreman mention the back end was a little loose and some about maybe the rear differential.
