got a 93 100 csqa with 200k+ miles, looks kinda ratty
with half the door mouldings gone and some surface
rust.... but runs like a champ and everything but the
cruise works ;) even the seat heaters!
been hearing and lately feeling a drivetrain out of
finally took a look today, put all 4 wheels up on jack
stands and started poking and prodding under there...
shook the wheels looking for bad wheel bearings.. one
moved... hhhhmmmmmm lo and behold i had a wheel with
loose lugnuts! argh, a few weeks back i had rotated
the tires. It's not like me to screw up something so
easy, okay so most of the time :) I torque everything,
then do a one more time around the whole car. I
distinctly remember doing it... hhhmmmmmm
The difference this time is that I used a deep socket
this time instead of a standard socket.
I forgot to add in the flex of the socket when i
torqued it all down. I checked them all with the deep
socket and most where at 80+ ftlbs.
Then i went over it again with the normal socket,
just a bit under 70 ftlbs they started to turn.
Beware Kids, I got lucky, no tires passing me on the
