I think this is why you are supposed to clean the salt off your cars in the winter... but I am not 100% on this.... because well most people do wash off the salt, 90% of them forget about the undercarriage...

$40 and one hour to fix, so it was a nice break...

Just replaced the one on the left, the right side is still solid, the one that broke was badly deteriorated, but I will be keeping my eye on the right side, just cant afford much right now.

Glad to hear you got home OK.
We went into Whitehall for pizza at Big John's and got there about 7 I think. Got home at 8:30.
Got there and my mom was there and right after we ordered my brother and his family walked in. None of us knew the others would be there...kinda creepy....

The shackle, bolts, and new busing for the spring. probably not the best deal but I buy at the place because they are good people, have the shit in stock, and you don't have to deal with the mouth breathers at auto zone... if auto zone even carry's suspension components.

The only way i was making that without lockers was to give it hell... I didn't feel like whacking my tire on the rut that hard.. Did it twice and that was enough for me..
