That "disposable" mentality is the same kind of thing that got us all into the current financial crisis -- you sound like you have a lot more disposable income than I have, but what will you do when it runs out?my philosophy is beat it till it breaks and then replace the broken peice of junk with a shiny new performance part. rip out the tranny? RWD conversion. sling a rod? 4.6 or 5.0 conversion. break the suspension buy coilovers. curb a wheel? buy some rims! but seriously tho i need some advice from somebody because i have no problem fixing it i just have a problem figuring out exactly what it is. and i really dont want to get stranded on the side of the road somewhere driving on broken parts. i think it might be the cv joints but i dont know how to check. lemmie know what you think the problem might be and how to check for it. PLEASE!!!!!!
"Drive it like you stole it" makes for a neat bumper sticker, but "Drive it like you OWN it" is a much better creed to live by in the long run. Even in the world of motorsports, winners and losers can often be separated by those who know how to take care of their machinery and bring it home to victory, and those who obliviously abuse it until it dies (which usually results in a premature retirement from the race and a "DNF" in the win column).
Good luck figuring this one out.
