After sandy I'm not sure if anyone planed on going. I didn't make it. Now having a problem with the car shuttering around 40 mph. Hoping its not the torque converter. Gonna take a look tomorrow.

After a look under the car my caliper was frozen and my tierod was toast. I really hate how the suspension is made for these cars. Its the 2nd tierod (same side) rack and pinion both upper ball joints and struts also 2nd alignment In 4 years. Maybe its time for a full high performance suspension kit!

Sounds like it time for Pedders! I wonder if it's earlier years as my 07 at 78k has the original Tie Rods and they are fine. I didn;t make it as it turned out as my car is still at HHP

Sorry to hear about the trouble with the suspension. I've never had any issues with mine, but it only has 57K miles on it.

Pedders is open on another window as I am reading this... checking out the different street packages to put this problem at rest once and for good! Really want to save everything I can for some motor work in spring.

Man I cant keep up with ya! Sounds like it is gonna be a sweet winter project. I'm hoping I can pull off a few tricks over winter as well... just picked up a second job just for 300 funding.... problem is everytime I get next to a Srt challenger I 2nd guess the 300c. Need to make up my mind before I tear my motor apart.

Erik know's his stuff and does great work. You could always go the e-mail tune route through Johan. No personal experience but he sure has a following.
I started to save for a stroker-but just bought another place to vacation at. So probably a year off now
