Yeah. I thought I had it all tightened up, but I guess I didn't. Oh well. I've got it in our shop right now. Not really sure if I can be driven with the suspension broken in the back.

Here's my '97 Aero right before the rollback picked it up. 102 degree weather and traffic in inner city Harrisburg, PA added up to a upper radiator hose exploding. Basically it sounded like a AR rifle being fired..... these was mass chaos surrounding my friend and I for 20 minutes till the rollback got there. The 10 cars surrounding peeled out causing another accident. Because the thought my car was blowing up, not like engine take a crap but literally explosion. There was a 20 foot smoke cloud surrounding it due to all the antifreeze landing all over the engine. Positive of the day if you look at my nifty Ford Taurus cup holders.......

YOU SEE WE MADE IT TO TACO BELL!!!!

that was back a couple years ago when I popped the T25 on the 9-3. Towed it home with the wife's 9-7X and gave me an excuse to put a TD-04 on it

LOL, nice. Where did you buy it -- was it a long tow?

Bought it in Glendale, towed Glendale to Oconomowoc, which since I didn't take the freeways was about an hour worth of driving and about 40 miles.

Honesly it didn't seem like the car was straining to tow, no harsh gear changes, it didn't get hot... And I had no problems starting or stopping, plus I went as fast as 55 mph.

I've read places that the 9-5 is rated at around 3,000 lbs so I wasn't going to sweat it.
