It's TRE time
« on: April 14, 2005, 10:08:38 AM »
So I'm getting a knuckle popping sound when I stop and start. Also at a stand still when I move the steering wheel back and forth, same sound. My car is feeling just a slight bit floaty as well (on my stocks).
I'm going to do the TRE Chas Check tonight to verify, but I'll most likely be replacing them next week. Do these symptoms sound about right?
Wifey's blaming it on my driving  :roll: ...she's probably right. I told her they were bad to begin with, she said I still drive too hard :roll:

Sounds right!  Let me know if you need some help.  Sundays work best.
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

Thanks Dave. I was hoping one of you guys would jump on and verify. I'll go ahead and order a set tomorrow. I really don't need any help as it looks fairly self-explanatory, I just don't like working on the car by myself :P So maybe we can get together on the 24th or something?

I'm definitly in for a TRE garge day... I need to replace mine too.

We should  ask Chas about the alignment shop he really likes.

So, should we set the date as the 24th?

I'd like to offer my house, but I need to check with Tish. I have room for 3 cars to be worked on.

Mark, you want to reset our CA's that day as well?

JR.  In order to look outside you must first look inside.

If you pee into the wind, it will come back to you.

Are fences put up to keep people out, or keep others in?

You can only walk half way into the forrest, the other half you are walking out.

TRE's ordered. Yay. I'm stoked. Riiiiiight....why can't there be indestructable cars in the world? That'd be cool.

I am sorry, but a big blue car a big "S" on the hood and a red rear bumper with a big red wing on the back does not get me going.  "Look, it's a bird....."   :D

That's funny. You'd probably be mistaken for the Skoda Pro Street team :P
