    I think something fell off the bottom of my car today when I had to mash on the brakes (ABS kicked in) on a wet road. I suddenly heard something metal detaching around the front right fender, and there was a jiggling noise until I went around a corner where the sound suddenly stopped. I pulled over and looked over the bottom of my car and didn't see anything missing. Weird.

    Could be something as small or simple as a bolt, clip, or retainer. Maybe the anti-rattle clips on your brake calipers? Take the wheel off at your next opportunity and take a glance around, if everything looks okay, functions, and your suspension feels fine, I wouldn't worry too hard.

    Hope your dad gets good out of that stroke, best wishes for you.


    And on topic of car, I'm going to get my new GMPP Front Sway bar next week, shit is way thicker than my stock one.

    Already showed this picture but :

    Handling is shit with a broken front sway bar, and the clunking is annoying.


    And it should be awesome with the GMPP thicker sway bar. And the rear end-link was to replace a broken one, will change the other one once I have a bit more money. Being a student sucks.



    On the good side of things, I already have a job debuting on the 14 of May, and my boss for said job called me this week to offer me another spot in the wildlife reserve, with better conditions, whom I'm going to check the place out tomorrow. If I score that one, I'm getting my diploma 2 weeks earlier and well, begining to work on the 30 of April.

    Yeah well, I'm nearly done with my post high school studies, either 1 week or 3 week left, depending on if I get the new spot tomorrow. The place I'm running for tomorrow is 4 days a week (Monday to Thrusday), 40hrs a week, food paid, bedroom paid, truck given there, and is governmental. The pay is 13,17$ for the first 60 days, then we get 6% raise, then next season another 3% more. In term of a year it pays about 40,000 a year, but I'll be working on contract. Running for wildlife agent too, but that's a big ass contest. Either ways, up here in Quebec there's plentiful of job covering my domain.

    Considering I'll already have two diplomas at 17 and that I'm already having no problem having jobs, it's not bad, eh

    What would be the best way of removing them? Don't have access to many tools, and I'm fairly sure it won't be too hard since the rings are rusted

    Also took my car to a muffler shop. "I'm sorry I cant do anything for you. All that I sell will not fit." So I will take it to some one else that want's my money more than him. All I want is it to be louder! I don't want to be accused of a fly!

    Don't have any of those. Maybe I can do something with a hammer, pliers, and a screwdriver

    Edited:

    Plus I don't have a jack, so it's going to be quite stuffy under there when I'm removing the rings

    Edited:

    Actually I'll have access to a wide variety of tools and a jack tomorrow. I'm gonna try using the hacksaw, hopefully it's rusted enough to saw through with ease

    Well, I'm home. It wasn't a stroke, which is good, it would have ben the second one he's had. Turns out he's been having small seizures that led up to a very big one tonight, it lasted a good half hour or more.

    I didn't know what happened until after I got to see him at the hospital, everything got explained after that. I felt really out of the loop for a while. It's also the first time my family has been completely together in a long time, my mother, father, sister, and brother (who has been in Iraq since March 2011). What an awful place for a family reunion.

    Anyways, my dad's on seizure medication for now until he goes in next week to see a neurologist to see why he's having seizures. Until then, suspended driver's license, so I'm his personal driver everywhere until he gets this cleared up.

    Which means in 4 hours I have to go pick him up for work, so I'm going to go get some sleep. I'm just glad he's okay.

    Thanks everyone.

    So, a question for you guys. My brake drums are very rusty on the outside (and a bit on the inside as well, but not very much.) The people in my auto class said I should replace the drums- but should I do more? I don't have a picture of the inside right now, but I don't know if I should try bleeding the brakes and/or changing the shoes. Will it save me enough money to do it myself, or just take it to a shop?

    Or should I just post a picture and get your opinion before I do anything?

    Cast iron brake drums are going to look rusty as fuck anyways. You're probably overthinking it.

    I'm serious, I've seen quite a few accidents just caused by them being idiots. In Europe, you have to go through extensive tests, unlike here where it's a joke. There are reasons we don't have fast highways here, people aren't smart enough to drive on them safely.

    So I was driving my car to a friends place and nothing seemed wrong. I spent the afternoon there and when I went to start my car the exhaust sounded a hell of a lot louder than before.

    Reason:




    I don't know why but they put a weird-ass spring loaded flange between the muffler and catalytic converter even though the whole thing is already suspended by rubber. Could of just bolted it together. As you can see the welds on the converter side broke all the way around. I don't have the tools to weld it back on because it will require removing the converter and I know those bolts will be IMPOSSIBLE to remove with a hacksaw but would it be easier to use that flexible metal mesh tube stuff (think finger traps) and just cut off the other side of the flange, slip it on and clamp it in?
