Hey ... I now have a problem and need to know if it is safe to at least drive home from work ... On my way to work I hear this snaping sound when I turned and didn't really think of it, I though maybe I ran over something, but then every stop I made the jeep wants to dive to the right and wiggle, I get to work and the lower control arm mont to the axel on the passenger side has snaped off. Is it safe to drive home or should I get a tow? I get off work in 8 hours. Thanks
If you limped it home you could probably make it. I would take it real slow and stick to the side streets, stay out of the way of anyone else on the road.
Im not saying you should or should not....if it was me....
IDK...like I said if it was me...I would go for it and just limp it home....limp meaning put it in gear and just let it roll 5mph. Worst case scenario if it starts sounding or feeling really bad pull over and get a tow. If you make it home then you just saved the tow fee to buy your new control arm perches, lol.
Do you not have AAA or towing on your insurance policy?
Why risk further damage if you don't have to?
Do you have a wheelin buddy maybe with a tow pig & a trailer that could come and get you?
Just a few days ago we got a call at 4 AM from one of our friends, he works nights. Came out and his rig wouldn't start. We hooked up the trailer and went and got him. Next day, OBM went and helped get him running again.

It used to be a jeep thing... til that sh!t broke!
