AIRBOURNE! better fit your car to FAA regulations

Just thought I'd put this on here.

So basically, I had one of those moments of charging through the intersection only to realize it is uneven in a way that is conducive to produce general lee charger moments.

and I wondered if people saw sparks fly out from under my car when the front came crashing down. I pulled into a parking lat to check for leaks or anything. that was a week ago and she has been driving fine so far.

anyone else have a similar experience? what was your outcome if you did?

Re: AIRBOURNE! better fit your car to FAA regulations

Check your downpipe for flat spots. That's usually the first thing that hits when you bottom out.

Not hard to see...from the front of the car, just look under the engine where the downpipe crosses under the the oil pan. Chances are your downpipe now has D shaped pipes instead of O shaped (in cross section).

Yeah, I would agree... The most widely used engine in transplants... And if I'm not mistaken, that LOOKS like that is a Chevette...
