So me and the kid are heading into town to pick up a couple items from the store, doin about 40-45mph, decide to get up to around 55-60mph and then…………
Car makes a 45 degree turn towards the ditch and trees!!!
Off the road onto the soft wet dirt shoulder we go, almost no steering, i get it back on the road keeping her as straight as possible trying to keep her straight as possible not wanting to touch the break since my front end is already locked up, not wanting to go into a spin.
Finally she starts slowing after about 300ft and i am thinking to limit the damage as much as possible, i know soon i am gonna have bad flat spots on the tires so i get it back over to that soft shoulder where she comes to a rest.
I turn her off, get out and see that my front spindle looks like it snapped!
After getting it to the shop it is confirmed, the bearings welded to the spindle and snapped it right off, only thing holding the wheel on the vehicle were the break lines!!!
What a HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Happened in my Catalina in my sig.
