I am new to this forum so pls forgive me if this has already been addressed. But I am scratching my head over this one. I am not even sure how I have not noticed this in the past. I was under my Cardinal 5th wheel the other day cleaning and lubing and I looked up and saw that the bottom of the shock next to my head was just hanging there. It was not connected to the bottom plate. I laughed and said to my self that the guy at the factory must have gone to lunch in the middle of putting in the shocks and forgot this one. But then when I looked over and all 4 were in the same condition. Connected at the top but not at the bottom. I have asked everyone I know and when they stopped laughing at me had no I idea why they would do this on purpose. Any idea's?
I had a good friend that was a tech at the largest buick dealer in Memphis. It was 1983
and the 1983 Buick Riveria Convertible was a high dollar car at the time. He had one come in with a BAD rattle and after two months (customer got a new car before this time) He was told bu GM to cut it up with a torch and find the problem.
So My friend cut the car apart and got to the frame and still had nothing. The GM authority told him "cut the frame we have to find this problem"
In the frame they found a coke bottle with a note inside
Note was "ha thought you would never find this one didnt you"
Wonder who lost there job on that one.
Car was traced build date 7/1/1983 that was a friday before the holiday weekend.
