My brother called me a little while ago and said his wheel fell off when he was trying to turn around in front of the house (illegal occupants across the street took all the spaces again...lol)

I'm like uh, can you repeat that? What?

"Wheel fell off"...

"What broke?"

"I dunno, car is on the ground. (swearing)"

"I have to find a tow truck"

Then I see this on Facebook...



Shocked

I don't know the specifics, but my brother says the balljoint was replaced recently...I'm not sure it was however...who knows Laughing

Car got towed to a shop, somehow they pulled it backwards onto a flatbed without wrecking it or scratching the bumper...getting fixed Monday...

Probably should have been replaced when that knuckle was replaced? Glad it was just in front of the house.

Yeah, pretty crazy. The driver's side was the one that had the whole spindle/knuckle done...I believe, but I think he said the the pass. side had something done too...lol

He told me that getting the car onto and off the truck was a chore because of how it was sitting, and then getting it into the shop down the street was even trickier, they were using blocks of wood and stuff to move it. Apparently the car wasn't damaged either which is good, because it was just stopped when the thing just let go!

it's too bad he wasn't in a Benz, they only need three wheels.
