My Metro is getting long in the tooth...

My '93 Metro 3 cyl (The Phoenix) is becoming a bit 'Long in the Tooth'...

Now, this summer, it has started creaking and popping when I go over wavy roads
or take sharp curves at speed.

If I accelerate/decelerate the frame pops over on the passenger side and I hear pops
in the trunk area.

I wonder how much longer it will be safe to drive.

I wonder if I have had some spot welds give up the ghost ?

I wanted them to strap me into the Phoenix when I die and roll me into the hole so that
I can drive it around in Hell.....

might just have some bad ball joints, bushings or a tie rod end. take it to a alignment shop, most will give you a list of what it needs for free
