Hmm, interesting, however that is not my issue. Plus, I blame my tire wear on my driving.
I have a metal on metal squeak from suspension. Worst when going slow. Somehow, no one at the dealership has been able to hear it so far. Bringing it in Monday to fix the oil leak, going to take them for a ride because the noise is making me insane

Keep me posted about the oil leak and what they say. And the Suspension. I hear noises sometimes form the rear when I go over bumps, but before I got rid of my long loved T-bird I had replaced both bushings up front and the rears were going so am a little anxious/paranoid when I hear noises from the wells. Can't say I have seen any leaks yet, but would like to know what if anything needs fixing.

I have no idea Stealth, previous owner installed, looks to be about 30-40%. slighter lighter on front doors.

Didn't make it to Roadhouse today.

Dryer died and had to do appliance shopping!

There goes my body kit for a couple months.

Body kit ?

The 2010-11 has the best front bumper IMO. Idk about skirts and rear bumper available for the MK2, but anything aftermarket is usually

Just my .02
