Well this morning on my way to work like every every other morning, heard a pop. Before I could ask myself (what was that?) I found myself flying off the road with no steering, through a ditch. Stopping right before going through a fence. After checking myself for leaks and slowing my heart rate down. I climb out to inspect the damage. Couldn't see anything hanging so, I stick my hand up under my gear box skid to find my pitman arm has either snapped or come loose. So now its sitting in the ditch till I gett off to tow it home. Can't think of
a better way to start my day! On top of that im stuck driving my wifes Hyundai!

Installed some so called self engineered retaining clips for the front coils... By the end of the
Weekend I'll know if they work and if the back ones need it also.
