Yesterday I backed off my first curbstop. Nothing touched when I parked there, not sure why it settled in during the day at work. Anyway, when I put it in reverse, idled back slowly as usual, I heard the chin drag. :sosad: Now, last time I had a car, a sound like that was no biggie, just roughs up the very bottom of the plastic, the part that only the oil change guys see, so I didn't worry about it. This morning tho, I looked underneath, and its sprung, drooping on one side.:weeps I was shocked to find absolutely NO metal on the frontend at all! Its flimsy plastic connected to more flimsy plastic. Just for S's & G's, take your finger and poke the bottom of the chin upwards. Notice how everything under the headlights moves. :what:

So beware of curbs, especially you previous SUV and pickup drivers like me. LOL, I'm used to pulling in till I feel the tires bump. Its SO hard to stop short of the concrete thingy.

I'm going to have to visit the body shop Monday, to see if they can do something about the warp/droop, it looks bad.

I did it again yesterday

I swear there's no hope for me, I've driven a pickup truck for too long.:sterb: This time I broke a plastic clip thingy and hubby had to rig it with a big washer and a nut/bolt. I can't remember to back it in either. Maybe eventually the shame of driving around with a droopy chin will make me *think*. Anyone know where I can get curb feelers? :what:
