I did put new strut plates in. I'll look at this afternoon when I get a chance.

I took it for a ride and listened if I could hear any pops or creaking, and I couldn't hear anything like that.

I couldn't see anything visually wrong with my front suspension. I checked some bolts and everything was tight.

Well, I'm at a loss. I'll have to take it up to a shop. I hate doing that.

Well, I broke my watch today. I was replacing the battery that was dead for almost 6 months. When I went to snap the back cover on, I heard a crack. The glass had a small crack in the corner all along, but I made it stretch across the whole face.



And that was my good watch too. lol

Haha yeah. I'm actually surprised it lasted two years before this happened. I usually go through a watch a year before they're broken lol

It'* metal and it'* rusty. I don't think it'* the mount. Looks like the old spring bearing.
