Next, we shall see if anything else happens... I had a feeling something like this would happen, merely because I knew about it, and I did not look myself, I looked at the front ones, but not the rears.

My mechanic wants me to watch him thread the plug back in, just in case it got cross threaded and then it has to go back to the builder.

Runs pretty much the same as before, no take off torque. At least there is no knock. Have to replace a couple of hoses. I am ready to sell this car.

I see you put it back on ebay. I saw a pic of the rim blow steering wheel not installed. Why give it away with the sale of the car. I paid about 900 for mine. Throw a separate add out and try and re-coupe so of your $$$$.
