Any time there's precipitation the temp jumps above 40 in VA. The weather is toying with us.

Installed 1.5 wheel spacers on all 4 side. No more rubbing and it looks good.

You just saved yourself $607.81. You can guess how I know that number precisely...probably because it was recent

Oh man, you lucked out there haha. Any idea how that happened? (Just so I know what not to do next time I'm out in the snow lol.)

Rinsed all the salt off of it.


Won't get a thorough proper spit shine inside and out until all this snow and road grime goes away.

True that. Supposed to be in low 40s this Friday - just 3 days after 2°F.

Not really sure what I did... it was a lot of drifted snow, and I was wearing my big -70* rated boots while I was mashing on the pedals... I guess anything is possible??

I called a dealership's part's department before I had arranged the tow truck... they indicated $920 CAD with taxes for the driveshaft. I figured better to use my CAA/AAA towing to get it back to the dealership instead of fixing it myself!!

Wow! Now that is expensive. It makes my front drive shaft replacement look like quite valuable. I get home tonight and will post the breakdown of what mine cost.
