	ah, i can see how running aftermarket shocks can put forces
upon the control arms and such that they weren't designed/tested to
handle.  i feel that once people start modding their cars, they need
to prepare for increased costs and decreased service life of parts.
i certainly expect that when i race out my two-stroke bikes.  they
sing to me on the road, and they also eventually grenade.  i don't
ever blame yamaha or suzuki for it, though.
