Well you see the wheel was like that before I lowered it. Now the car seems to fight the wheel. I going to have the alignment checked it seems like it wants to spin the car around on wet pavement. Rain sucks but snow is a nightmare to drive on.

The rear springs was broke on both sides so I figured replacing them would fix the issue but that's a negatory. The driver side rear is the only one that's like that. I'm not stupid I know lowering a car will cause negative camber.

I've been saving the money to get the suspension redone for a while. I have a appointment to have the car looked at this coming wendsday.

It's because of posts by people who were put on a global ignore list. The posts are still there in the page count, but most people can't see the posts. Say you have your pages set to be 20 posts per page and there are 15 posts from a globally ignored person (or from multiple people), then once there is a page with 6 posts you will see another page in the "page count"

(I happen to run a forum, I know how these things work)

Did you paint over the wheel weights?
you could look into the ones that stick onto the inside and they look much cleaner. Also looks like the inside of the spokes didnt get as much paint

But why would a forum want to put its members on a global ignore list?


Anyways, here's a updated picture of my wagon. Really happy with the gold wheels on here vs my car.
