Re: [DML] crumple tube.



I'm not sure that the reinforcement kit would have helped this one. 
This looks like what happens when you run into a concrete parking 
stop, and hard. This is a long way from normal wear and tear, and I 
don't see how you could get this from bad roads without ripping the 
ball joints out first. 

This could also concievebly happen by dragging the car up ramps onto 
a trailer with the front tires flat, but the operator would have to 
have been using a winch and also be somewhat brain-dead at the time.
