    Default Loosing my mind!!!

    Ok I think I need to go see the Wizard this week.
    I think I pulled the drivers front wheel off the ground when I did a u turn today.
    So I had to due a U turn today because the freakin light would not turn green. So with a little road rage so I turned right to go to the next light to do a U turn and and once I started turning I nailed it and noticed the drivers front side came up and once it came down the tire chirped.
    Think I am crazy ??? Or has this ever happened to anyone before??

    I had done it before when my Jeep was a daily driver. It could be that there was enough top side force pushing over to cause body roll to the outside due to momentum for flooring it around in the u-turn. This would be simple and usual except the additional force of hitting the gas in a moment of road rage caused enough body roll that it forced hard down on passenger side and if your disconnects (sway bar links) were connected it would have pulled the opposite side and lifted up your driver side. This happens more with lifted vehicles because there is more room for body roll which adds to the momentum to give it more force and ability to lift the inside wheels off the ground.

    At least, thats what it seems like it could be haha.
