As some of you may have read in other posts, I was having a brake drag
98 civic lx 5 spd. 282000kms.
I hit the brakes at highway speed, lost control, and ended up in the ditch.
Car is mostly OK, as am I.
Upon thinking about the performance of the car once I started to lose control,
it occured to me that perhaps the weak shocks I have contributed to my
inability to regain control of the vehicle once the skid started. The shocks
on this car have never been replaced, and I live in Winnipeg, so I'm sure
that even though they pass the bounce test, they are probably done.
Can anyone lend any credence to this?
Anyways, I have called around, and geez are these things expensive! $149.99
each x 4. Thats for Monroe Sensatracs. It seems that nobody bothers to
carry anything else.
Fortunately, I called around and found the same Monroes for $101.24 each.
Are Monroes OK? Or should I be heading to the dealer for these?
