New front struts that HAVE to get in this eve. Driving to Nashville and we head out tomorrow evening. My car has been wobbling like crazy and the front end is bouncing. Meyle HD refresh in the front too and the CV axle got replaced.

This would be the last of the front end. Biggest concern is the tires as i sense they are cupped just a little bit but hopefully not enough to affect the ride or the tire too much. They have quite a bit of tread left.

So it begins...

Went to pick up the new shoes and after ordering Nt555g2's with a backup choice of NT Invo's, I get these from the tire shop... NT421Q !?! Not sure why they ordered all season "snow" tires but apparently my use of the Arabic cuss words is considered both inappropriate and impressive

So now NO new shoes until the correct ones come in...

If Taco or anyone else in the area is interested I can get you a deal...

Apparently, they do it with little difficulty.

The guy claimed he got these because the g2's get loud after driving a few months!

I mean anyone whose ever been to the Middle East knows about the quality roads, so tire noise wasn't even on my radar.

421Q is an all season tire, not a snow tire. Although, it does have light snow capabilites. The G2 and Invo would def be categorized as summer tires though if that's what your looking for. FWIW, I have the G2's and I've put about 5k on them with no issues. Can't help with the noise concern as I have a custom Corsa exhaust.

Replaced rear tires with second pair of Continental Extreme Contacts.

Replaced coolant expansion tank from FCP Euro.
