I think the rear subframe is ****ed on my car too.... a while ago i was trying to explain the click my car makes.... well that click is actually the differential moving around.

The front right side of the subframe is completely gone.


The other 3 points looked fine though. can i run a rear subframe on only 3.5 points?

another question: if i cant or to make it more doable. can i not make a "sandwich" of metal around where it broke so i can drill a new hole in where the subframe was and have that new hole be a Sandwich to make it as if its a new hole all in all....... does this make sense? haha.

you have a video of the noise Franklin?. cause my car started clicking when engaging when the tiniest power is applied to the wheels. I wanna see if its the same thing cause the wheel that makes the noise is also doing other types of noises

I dont think i do.. and hoenstly its dangerous for me to make it click.


It sounds like a suction cup coming off a window really quickly.
and it sounds like its coming from inside the trunk. even if you put your head in the trunk it like echos throughout.

When i get on it normally... nothing. when i get on it hard. nothing till i let off and pound it into second you hear a loud "THUMP" not good.


then if i go slow like 25-30mph n second gear and have the revs a little high and jut click the throttle. over and over and over and as the car slows and goes it clicks.


Its so bad........ i dunno what to do.

It could be any kinda drivetrain lash from a few different places. We'll get her up on jack stands one day soon and check it out. I'm getting a similar problem but not as bad. I think it's slack in the output of my trans.

Haha I've never ran under a 7 30. I've been doing around an 8 lately, but that's the pace for 1.5 miles.

Jen, when I sold my house in Calgary, it went into a 5 person bidding war. Sold for 5% over list price without waiting on financing

Both of the above x 10000000

Finally someone that understands me. I got made fun of this morning for complaining about waiting, standing still, for 7 more minutes while my train was late in 48*.

Man, I have to admit I'm anxious for the holiday shopping season to arrive so I can get some deals on car parts. I want to buy some stuff for the E36, but I know that deals are just around the corner and I must wait...

Silly me, I already parked the bike for this year because we had 2 weeks of mid 30-40's

Now the past two days we've hit upper 60s and mid 70s
