    Loud Bang? HELP!

    So i was driving my scoob home tonite after a good run of backroad 'cruising' with a buddy.

    On my way home i cooled my driving down a bit and when i was almost home i hear just one loud bang. It sounded like it came from my left rear end. My first reaction was that i ran over something big. Rock, stick, whatever and it flew up and hit my car underneath. I was only going about 25-30 in my neighborhood. I turned around to see what i'd hit, nothing there. My next thought was that my strut/springs were 'settling' as was the case with an older honda i'd had. Any time it was on a lift it would pop on the way home, but my car hasnt been on a lift in over a week, and ive done alot of driving since ...

    My only other thought was that it happened as i reached the top of a hill and leveled off, maybe caused the suspension to settle awkwardly. No idea.

    Anyone else run into this? Any suggestions, ideas anything. Just worries me a little. Thanks guys.

    If i were you i'd panic and sell your car for thousands below blue book value to someone who lives in California, to avoid and future headache and stress.


    Did I mention i've always wanted an STI?
