I'm impressed that your first car is a 5th gen SS and it's still operating after 5 months. That means you're either mature, a good/natural driver, or lucky (or maybe a combination of them).

I've had a vibration around 65 MPH for about 4 months now. Sometimes it's worse, especially if I get on a highway soon after starting the car for the day. I've been to 2 different Discount Tire...

The rear sway bar has a link on each side (just like the front sway bar). You're missing one. I'm surprised you didn't notice anything wrong in the handling before.

I don't think it's an ugly design. I wouldn't call it attractive but it's not terrible. The Ford Super Duty designs have been questionable recently too.

Impressive. Whoever did the tuning knows what they're doing. I'm interested in knowing how reliable it is.
The car probably has a couple more passes in it before something gives or breaks.

You need to remove that ugly dealer sticker on the trunk. Also,...
