cant say i really cared that much, its just a scratch on a car i drive all over. it was bound to happen anyway but i just couldnt believe the lack of respect attitude. i think if she would have said sorry or something i would have told her its fine.

im the type that goes to walmart and parks at lowes. i dont have much of an issue with carts parking that far out.


i took my car to be aligned after doing the rear struts, sway bars and the front tie rod ends. car goes straight now, but still has a wobble around 68 mph. im thinking either a sticking brake pad or un balanced wheels. the wobble occasionally presents itself at low speeds also though, so im leaning towards pads. project for my next off day i guess.

yesterday worked on a 03 foreman spring service and gas leak. the leak was the bowl gasket. i am a pretty big fan of honda because they rarely break but its a total pain to work on. there are cover over every thing, a million fasteners on every cover. you have to take a bunch of covers off the bottom just to do a oil and diff fluid change.

today got to get the truck inpected and get the camper going so i can go camping next weekend. and maybe if the swap drys enough to not to get the tractor stuck i will try to mow my jungle

Had the same thing on my PA, one of the front wheels on ice bumped a curb,
Wheel balance corrected the slight wobble. Might be worth checking the rotors with dial indicator/runout gauge too Jason.

Changed out the spark plugs for the first time since I've owned the car. I found one champion, two NGK'*, and three Autolites. It'* probably been a while since they've been changed. I also changed the plug wires and O2 sensor.

I'm also battling some bad KR and coolant temperature issues. It'* got me pretty stumped.

forgot to put down, i got the wife to ride in my firebird, its a monumental occasion. the last time was before i put all the racing stuff in it and that was a few years before i had my daughter, and she is eight. i took the racing suspension stuff out and put kyb stuff in it and its much less of a pogo stick now. actually rides pretty decent on the rural roads for a car with 2 or 3 inches of travel
