hahahahhahahahahah

yea, if your a FU****G moron and cant tell "hey there's something banging around up there, and i can feel it in the steering wheel" or how about, "oh gee the trucks really bouncy on that one corner"

"MAYBE I SHOULD GET OUT AND LOOK!"

if your stupid enough to let something go that long, you deserve to crash.. springs are one thing, shocks aren't as bad.

remember your tires are spinning at over 600 times per mile, thats alot of rubbing. It wouldnt take more then a mile or 2 to go through the side wall and blow out the tire.

Was browsing and came across this thread.

Glad I did - it reminds me of why I like to do my own work/maintenance, and why I hover around the mechanic/garage when I let someone else touch it.

Don't know if I would use some of the language you guys do , but I certainly agree with the sentiment!!!

It's your butt, and/or that of someone close to you in that vehicle - have to agree 100% that it always pays to check it out IMMEDIATELY when you suspect all is not right.

like i said, if you are stupid enough not to pull off the road and take a look, you deserve to lose a tire..
