Shattered rear window?

Postby Shaffer325ix » Sat Nov 22, 2014 12:07 am

Hey guys, I just shattered my rear window, just like that, boom! Not sure when it happened but I started thinking about a post somewhere I read about the weak rear shock mounts, that made me look for these which led me to think about the body twisting all violent like during my wheelstand inducing launches at every stop sign... (j/k) and thunk that the fact I have a rear shock I thought was just bad, is in fact blown through the mount.

..has anyone ever experienced this, or could this just be my luck?

I blew a RSM before, but it didn't break the window if that's what your asking. No way the chassis flexes enough to break the rear glass.

I'd chalk it up to age.
