Hey got 09 sedan. Can someone (that has stock suspension) tell me how tall their car is. Measuring from bottom and center of fender to ground. Had car up in air other day all day with tires off and now my height is all out of wack. Rr tire has a good 4 inches of clearance. Df measures 26.5 pf measures 26.75 Dr measures 26.5 pr measures 27.75. Just doesn't seem right. I thought they just need to resettle but I've put about 60 miles since then and.still the same.

Recently I've heard knocking coming from the left front while turning. I have no clue what it is and everything looks fine.

BTW, I had the front left axle replaced a couple months ago because the boot got torn.

Having been through 3 30k miles services now, the going rate in my region in the States is between $400-700, depending on what "recommended" services the dealer wants to include. Of course you could, and probably should decline most of them and do as much as you can or want to do yourself. You should be able to get the major work done for around $400, I'd say.

I'm thinking it may be a tie rod. I'm not sure if mine should be that bad at 50k.

You could get a flashlight and look under there.. and grab the tie-rod end and try to move it and see if there's play that shouldn't be there. That's what a mechanic will do first thing too.. but will be much easier on a lift.

Also if you want to get into it. Technically the 11-12 (widebody) fronts don't exactly fit either. The camber adjustments are different.

I've had my '10 2.5i for about 2 months now, put a little over 1k miles since then (loved every mile ) I haven't done that much to it as I just payed off my first year of college so I'm broke . But I did PlastiDip'd my hub's just to get rid of the yellow curbage on them till i can afford new wheels, and installed a Pioneer HU with Mic for calls.

I needed to replace my tail lights anyways and I saw that these were cheaper than OEM replacements so I asked my girlfriend to pick them up for me for my birthday. So far I have zero complaints with them. I will confirm that they are sealed properly after the first rainfall tonight.

How is the quality of the mic? I also have a Pioneer HU and tried mounting it where you did, but people on the other end of the call complained that is sounded terrible. I have it mounted on the dash now above the gauges, but still the same stuff.
