So lots of excellent advice on how to ship a sway bar. But nobody wants the free sway bar. :impressive:

good philosophy. So go get your :minivan: Really hoping not to have to resort to that, obviously.

USPS scheduled pickup has worked for me. I used it to send out my ebay sales last week and send some :poorvette: junk to Griff.

Shipping a sway bar is probably :waxer: :doe:

Obligatory C5 Thread

I have a C6GS front sway bar (31mm), bushings and end links, all with 25K miles on them, for free.99 (shipping only) to whoever would like it. Cleaning out my garage during the extra free time. I replaced it with the ZR1 33mm front bar. No, I'm not going to go ship it in the Corona dome, but when it...

:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

G8 GT should get around 25 highway without dumb mods. I looked into them multiple times but they've always been too big and more money than I wanted to spend. Especially now that an 8-speed Charger must be around the same price. 335i would easily get 30... I am maintaining that it is a far better s...

:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

335i would easily get 30... I am maintaining that it is a far better sport sedan than this. And it’ll be reliable enough until 150k miles at which point most cars are absolute worn out garbage You're :notwrong: in my opinion.

I mean to be fair that’s a huge role and huge responsibility
It is...but 20% to someone who makes $50k is way more "sacrifice" than 50% of $14M...

Earthquake Insurance is included in that quote. If I actually had to use it I would probably be filing my claim from Waxer's garage in Hurricane loading shells for the Zombie Apocalypse, but I am clarifying my rates.

Who Do You Use For Insurance?

We have USAA. They are excellent. For a brief period of time we had 4 cars insured, the house, and a 2M umbrella for $688/month. The addition of a 17 year old to that policy upped the ante almost $200/month. Crotchfruit for the loss.

I regret that. fixable valve spring issues aside, the 7 liter LSX is kick ass. That Z28 with that engine is a collector car.

The manual transmission GS 6.2 coupes still have some engine provenance. Hand assembled like the 7.0 and with the forged crank from the LS9 because of the dry sump system.
