Didn't I tell you to go with Monroe parts for that last year?
Anyway, good to see you'll finally have this sorted.
Yeah but it said the "no you can't use these parts with your car" crap, so I didn't bother. Today when I was looking around I said fuck it and wanted to see the parts for myself in person. I'm glad I did.
I gave the new parts a sound thrashing today. I found the most fucked and twisty bit of road we have around, started some ZZ Top, and floored it. And the car did not disappoint, it's hardly a canyon carver but it did better than all the other times I've driven the same road. It noticed the biggest difference when I hit the railroad tracks at 40mph and took a turn a little too fast. But I was smiling ear to ear the whole time.
It's just amazing the giant difference the new shocks have made.
And just incase someone thinks I was being irresponsible, this was on an old back road with nothing but farmland around and I didn't go past the speed limit... much. An old man needs to have a little fun every now and then you know.
err you hit the railroad tracks at 40mph? That really can't be good for your suspension
Sure it is. Builds character. Puts hair on it's chest.
BTW: "railroad tracks" could mean a pretty well-maintained intersection where there's spaces between the pavement and the rails, but no elevation change. Then, there's also the railroad crossings where you can get the car airborne, or or least injure any passengers' heads by hitting the roof of your car...
We have one of those in my town, and there's at LEAST one wreck there a month, from teenagers gifted a drivers license and speeding over the damn thing trying to "Catch some air, yo!" in their riced out Hondas. They will ALWAYS bottom out on landing, spin out of control, and end up in someone's front garden....the next one on the other hand... Depending on the direction you go, you either go up a steep incline to reach them or as soon as you get past the second rail the bottom literally drops out from under you. If you go above 5mph either way on this one you're going to bruise your car. When you drive the same area for years and years, you know what you areas you can safely do and what speed you can do it at.
