    I am so sorry. I had an axle issue with an SUV and that was no fun. I can't imagine how much this sucks for you. Was told mine was rare, too but I was also asked if we brine roads. (I also had a spring snap on the back driver's side.) I wonder if that has anything to do with your recent issues?

    doubt it. the bag rides on a heavy duty plastic cylinder at the bottom as it inflates/deflates. was told, usually when these blow its due to a little rock or something like that getting kicked up in there and as the bag expands, it creates a defect/weak spot that cant handle the pressure.

    both times I had just hooked up to a trailer and the air system was leveling off the trailer. fortunately I was on the opposite side of the trailer when these blew. super loud, sounds like a cannon or those fireworks shells with no sparkly stuff.

    Glad the truck won!

    When my husband and I lived above the Cuyahoga Valley and worked in the park, we both hit deer with our vehicles. M hit one with his Toyota truck. Killed the deer. I hit one in the lil bare bones Tercel we owned and while I did not kill it, I also didn't damage the Tercel either. Scared us both though.

    Failure to yield into oncoming traffic, Illegal lane change, one of those falls on them.  They are an idiot and I don't see you getting nailed for this one.

    She claimed injury. cops were on edge at first. spoke to her, then came to me. I said nothing. pressed play instead. their demeanor changed immediately.
