Just had my alignment done again, requested 0 toe from my indy. Side hop now pretty much gone. Michelin Pilot sport A/S plus @39psi 5k miles stock suspension.<p>Thinking out loud here, when the car side hops the rear end leaves the ground correct? Would this have any added stress to the collar/spline due to transfer of power to different wheels when the car sensed slippage of the rear wheels (in the air). Does that make any sense? Also, what is this doing to the wheel bearings that seem to fail regularly. <p>I have 51k on my 07 and have not had any failure of the angle gear/spline/collar but you all have me scared to drive this thing. The car is all stock, never driven hard (wife owned it for the first 46k then it got handed down to me). The hardest it has been driven is short passing bursts, 70 to 95 or so and 55 to 80 or so. Hasn't seen redline yet, maybe 4500 to 5000rpms tops. <p>Haven't had the fluids changed yet but plan to in about 5k miles. <p>Will throwing this car around in the snow expedite failure? <br>Is it easier on the car to drive with DSTC off?<p>I've read with interest all of the threads I could handle on these weak points and would love to see a permenant fix as I plan on runnng this till it dies. VIP warrenty should help.<p>Boils down to this, what can I do other than constant fluid changes and driving like a grandpa to help this thing along.
