Re: i need help!

you just posted a pic of your wheel wrobble issue, so replace the part and get the car aligned. Can you take a pic a little further away to see the whole affect of the crash

They fixed it. I just got my car back and I notice a rear sway when I hit a dip or bump on the road

Re: i need help!

I remember my first incident..and my second..both totaled the cars. Notice I didn't say accident, because my driving was not accidental nor intentional it was being smart-ass...

Brand new cobalt ss supercharge and is300 damn I miss that Lexus!!

Anyways I almost wrecked my lude a year ago driving as well, I was going fast on an on ramp while it was pouring down cats n dogs. Good thing it was early and light traffic because i did a 360 and ended up off the side of the road half way through the curve, checked over my shoulder for traffic and continued on like nothing happened, but damn was my adrenaline pumping til the next day.

Re: i need help!

hhaha i did the same thing right about a year ago i was going on the on ramp and this BMW was on my tail so i speed up on on the ramp where a turn was coming and my back end slipped and went ahead first and i ended up on the off ramp on the other side lol that BMW didnt even stop so i just drove off like nothing happened...i liked the adrenaline rush too of it but i ended up being scared of that on ramp in the rain time
