I was driving to work today when I noticed that the ride was getting very hard. So I get to work and take a look around to notice that my front drivers side wheel is tucked right up to the wheel well. I took a look up into the well and I can see the spring is compressed right up into the housing. Pop the hood, strut mount is still good. So, it is super cold here right now and I'm guessing that maybe it froze with all the snow and ice buildup, but now I have the car in a heated garage and it still won't pop up. Sooooo, has the strut lost all pressure? (oh ya, even under force the strut won't release, it stays fully compressed.) Kurt (hamster) told me that ablown strut bounces, but this is just locked in place. Whats up???
I may be getting my Weitec's earlier than I thought.

Re: Living the low life, but only with one wheel. (Fettes Brot)

eep.. hopefully nothings damaged..
It sort of happened to me once..
I was driving around in some sluchy stuff packing it into the wheelwhells..
I parked the car for the night and the next morning I had NO suspension.. and I couldnt turn the wheel.. and I was most afraid that I would rip a cv boot off if I even moved the car.
so I left it till it melted.
great story huh?

That was before I moved to Vancouver.
It happened when I lived in the West Kootenay Region of BC. (up in the mountains)
