Hay guys, has any one ever snapped there front strut be4??
I went to profix today because my wheel alignment was shot and my car was always scraping when i turned right. I booked it for tomorrow but when i was driving home i heard a noise, it was grinding and TRAIN like :? i went back and said i think its unsafe and they had a look and basicly my front left strut was being held there by hopes, dreams and paint!! it had totally snapped.....i dunno how it happened!! Its fixed now but still crazy :shock:
