I had a bonafide pothole explosion yesterday. I was going about 85 on the highway. Typically, the ride quality, even with RFT and stock shocks, is quite good on the highway. I was passing through a construction zone (all the workers were off for the weekend) and the pavement started getting pretty bad, but my car was taking it in stride. Then out of nowhere, there was a frost heave type bump in the road. It was practically as large as a speed bump and went all the way across, so it wasn't possible to swerve around it. The impact was so harsh, I thought I'd broken the car in two. I was shocked to see that the car continued on, smooth, without a broken alignment. At the next rest stop, I stopped for gas and checked the wheels. I thought I was going to find a bubble or some evidence of damage. Nope. All seemed well. Steering seems fine. Guess I got lucky. But looks like I'm going to make an appointment to get these Koni FSD installed after all.
