Okay so last night my friends and I went cruising for some fun roads...

One of my friends knew of this abandon road with no houses on it, that was a dead end so no cars on it...just plain NOTHING. It is a truly amazing road.

Anyways...we took it at some pretty high speeds...I mean only about 45 but its a lot of tight quick twists and turns so that is QUICK for this road...after that we went cruising around and my friends car broke down...So...we all get out to check it out and I notice my windshield is cracked...could it be from tossing my car around? Could my frame flex THAT much?

yeah it flexs A LOT. especially after coilovers and sway bars. There's nothing left to bend besides the chassis. I need some braces and a front strut bar

Firstly, ^^^^ ewwwwww! :)

I remember this girl I'm friends with in high school had a 92 or whatever the first year SVX was. That car was soooo hot. Cops would pull us over just to figure out what the heck it was. But since it was the first MY it had some problems. If you turned a corner to fast the front windshield was just get annihilated. So her pops got SOA to warranty the glass on the whole car for 100k miles. He was a lawyer. Couple years later they offered that same warranty protection to any of the first MY owners of the SVX.

cheers

If your looking for cheap strut bars... get these:
http://stores.ebstores.us/Items/regfurusi9401?
(You can also get them separately, but you get a better price in the pair)

I can vouch for how strong they are, despite the price... now obviously Cusco and other name brands may be SLIGHTLY better, but you really can't beat them for the price. Who wants to pay $150+ for a name brand one?
