Well not exactly but close.  Driving home from work. Almost home and the
driver's front tire locks up and is making the sweet noise of rubbing
against the wheel well. Get out and look - the wheel is shifted rearward
in the wheel well.

Procedure: 1)kick car and curse 2)walk home in 16degrees F

Diagnosis: I am thinking the stabilizer bar fell.  The wheel still turned
left and right and the axel didnt pull out because I could still drive it.
Only warning signs were yesterday.  The car would make a single loud
clunking noise when turning sharp left.  Too cold to check it out.

Ever heard of this happening?
