Angry My WHEEL fell OFF

Friday the 13th my front left wheel fell off. I was pulling into my driveway when I heard a loud bang, first I thought my front lip fell off and I ran it over so I was like no big deal. I get out of my car and I look and can't believe my eyes. My fender was resting on my wheel and it got bent in a little. Then I realized how lucky I was, I drove like 90 m.p.h 5 minutes earlier and then my wheel falls off while I'm pulling into my driveway. I quickly jacked it up on a jack with those little wheels and with the help of my friends I pushed it to the side of the curb. It looks like the ball-joint busted that I replaced 2 weeks earlier. I had it towed and I should know by Monday exacatly what happened. I really want to know whether the ball-joint was installed wrong or whether the part was defective from the factory. All I know is that I'm very lucky to be alive. After all it was Good Friday. Another proof that control is just an illusion, you could never predict what will happen next. Be safe everyone.

No, I think someone had a legit question, then they "did a search" instead of posting a new thread.

Make a new post with a question, people tell you to search. Run a search, and ask a question on an old thread, and people make fun. Can't win for losing, I guess.
