    Going to get a new Chevy??? I have seen it a few time. The rubber they use for mount rots out then the bolt fall out. Usually the cust comes in complaining about noise in the back of the car before it happens. What did that guy call you in that other thread?????? What was that???

    I'd agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

    Funny how you say preventative maintenance is your friend, that is what I thought too. My wifes xterra had a TSB for lifters that would go flat causing a tick. So I putnew lifters in it broke them in and used the oil nissan specified. Well 32 miles later one lifter gernaded, needless to say we put a new motor in her vehicle.

    Maintenance is great and being able to put the cars on a lift is great but shit happens. Hope the damage to the benz isnt that bad

    Chris, it appears you are rough on your vehicles, first you push the limits of your ford truck, now you rip the rear end out of the Benz....maybe it's best you just hire a limo to take you around... I mean, you are THE KING CREOLE aren't you?
