driving without front disc brake splashguards.
my '93 has very rusted splashguards on the steering knuckles, looked underneath today to check on my leaking front pinion seal and saw that the passenger side splashguard must have froze to the rotor with snow and when i backed up it pretty much came apart. ive seen rangers run without them, any bad effects from this? the only reason ive not tossed mine yet was because i figured if nothing else, the splashguard would act as a heat sheild between the rotor and the tie rod end thats close to the rotor. besides looking at a junkyard, i doubt id find any for sale anywhere. should i toss 'em and not worry about it, or see about finding a set somewhere?
