As much as it sucks to lose the car, we are extremely thankful that you were fine. Can't wait to see the new ride you end up with, and next time you test sway bars, a large empty lot is probably best. Glad you're alive to tell your tale man! Best of luck!Well, the 04 is no more. The night of August 26 I installed an Addco rear sway bar that I waited for 4 months to get, and while testing it on wet roads, went around a corner too fast and rolled it /images/ImpalaForums_toucan/smilies/tango_face_sad.png
I’m fine, praise the Lord! The car is not. Broken glass, both front doors smashed, both fenders, both rear quarter panels, a-pillars, exhaust ripped off, 1 coilover ripped half off, she’s a goner.
Most of the parts I put on are salvageable, 2 of the coilovers aren’t.
Right now it’s sitting at the house waiting to be parted out while I fix up a Cruze to sell and drive the winter beater.
It had 244,000 miles, had a decent amount of rust, but still ran and drove well. I plan on stripping all the parts I can use, might keep the trans, keep the top end of the motor, all the audio equipment and such is fine.
I also plan on finding a clean Florida 04 same color, LS, etc., to use as my summer car. That will be a year or two down the road.
For now, repping the winter beater, 02 3.8 with 212,000, very rusty, snow tires and such.
Bought that Cruze for $700 the day after I wrecked the 04, needs a trans, pulling it now, and will fix up and sell to get a suburban or something for the sled trailer.
Anyway, I’m still here and still love Impalas, just a little sad, but there’s a reason /images/ImpalaForums_toucan/smilies/tango_face_smile.png
