My car's suspension was making lots of clunking, even some scraping. I hope, and kinda think, it's all the compression rod bushings doing this.

As the car warmed up, it became quieter.

Also, the TPMS light returned.

There's a buzzing rattle whenever the motor is cold, I'm not sure what it is. I just try to be nice on the happy pedal until the motor warms up, and then it's all fine.

The clunk-scrape is kinda new. Usually, it's just a clunk, the scrape is very uncommon - but this was a very cold day relative to previous days. It's never been a factor when going on and off the brakes in a traffic line though. :hmm:

TPMS light stayed on the whole way home, checked tires at home, between 30 and 34 PSI. Recommended value is 30, so it's all pretty okay - obviously, everything was warmed up from driving.

Inflate to sidewall and drive 130km/hr for six hours. Evacuate to 1 micron, hold for 20 hours, break vacuum with pure argon, re-inflate to 33 1/3 psig. Drive 78km/hr for 16km. That should fix the yellow fleabag light for good.
