    Hope not. My parents Durango just had the lower ball joints go out. $300+ bill.
    On a side note, there's a huge teacher strike here in town. UPS is going to honor the strike, too, which is very wierd. So no school for at least a week. Good thing since I didn't do a big paper due tomorrow. Bad thing it pushed graduation into mid summer.

    I took it in this morning and should know this afternoon. I am thinking the a-arm bushings, but doesn't completely convice me that something like that would cause the racket it does.

    When we lowered dohcvtec_accord's car for the first time his upper arams would hit the fender after camber correction. We had to remove a little material from the a arm to get it to clear. I think you and he have the same gen accord.

    Yeah we do, and I already trimmed the a-arms. It's not lowered anymore, too. Stock springs for the winter.

    That's true, I had forgotten that.

    Drums need to be tuned, and drum heads break.

    Fender was bent out to give clearance, too.
    I got my car back working great and with no clanging.
    Total cost to repair it: $25
    All the bushings on the right and some on the left were rock hard and had to be lubricated. Also there was some door seal that was rattling at lot too.
    So a can of WD-40 and some various sealing and my car is riding smooth and quite (except for a noisy muffler).
