Pinky's at the Doctor's

Pinky has spent her day at NWMINI. My upper strut mount on the drivers side has a crack (thanks John for pointing that out), and she was making a weird whining noise while traveling.

The strut mounts are replaced in pairs, thank goodness my shocks are still in good shape. The whine, well that would be my lovely runflats. I have the Goodyear RF, I guess they are known for this noise when they start to wear. (I just bought them last year). So I will be looking at a non-rf, and AAA roadside assist.

I hope everyone is enjoying this nice sunny weather (while it lasts).

Glad to hear that you have fixed Pinky's problem. Speaking of nice sunny weather, you missed a great run up to Crystal on Saturday. Beautiful weather - and the roads were wonderful.

Zoiks. A crack in the strut mount is all sorts of Not Good. Hope it's not too bad on the wallet.

I really wanted to go on that run. I was down at the ocean for a wedding.

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
