    its okay now. I jack up my car when I got home, Weird thing is nothing is in there and the brakes are properly aligned. My suspect is the rotor was loose or the lug nuts where not tighten properly thats why there's a play on the rotor when I brake.

    Jimmy had done all the repairs on my car on the past but this time he have an assistant.

    Anyone have an alternative way of contacting Jimmy? Supposed to have an appointment with Jimmy on Monday but something came up. I've been calling twice a day every day since Tuesday, but only get his full mailbox. Any other suggestions?

    I got springs installed today. On the way home I heard a horrible rattling sound from the rear passenger side whenever I went over the slightest bump. I checked at home and it looks like my mount broke. Will post a pic if I can figure out this damn tapatalk thing..

    The rear mounts are notoriously weak on our cars. I broke both of.mine hitting a pothole on the 401. I then broke one of the replacements because a tiny piece was stuck to the car and I didn't see it and when I bolted it down it cracked.

    I've had mine ten years and this is the first time I've had an issue like this. I guess I've been lucky.

    Some people are, the mounts are made of powdered aluminum IIRC and not a solid piece so they are really weak. I have since upgraded to coilovers and not had any problems since they use a solid piece of aluminum for the mounts

    also keep in mind lowering springs are stiffer than stock, thus putting additional stress on your mounts.

    Evidently. I hadn't thought of that until I saw what happened. I'm just using ProKits, so not too low. I just hope I didn't shear off the top of my shock.

    If you call the 905 between 10am and 4pm someone generally answers. I have made three appointments recently, and have had no issues making contact.

    Thank you Jimmy for dealing with my car again.
    Thank you for also ordering an extra part and trying to get a hold of me when I didn't have reception at work.

    Springs broke, replaced rear trailing arm bushings, 2 axle seals toast. All done at once and I'll get an alignment done this week some time.

    I can't keep track anymore

    I can't remember the name of it. Rubber bushing on top of the driver's side shock - loud knocking over any bumps.

    I have practically built a new car suspension wise. Curse downtown streets.
