My car has been really noisy. That is I can hear the road. I think I might need new struts. Any thought what else it might be? The car itself run well and the tires were replace last year and there is enough air in the tires. If I need new strut (never replaces then on this car) how much might it cost in parts and labor?

One day a cousin (not going to mention anything else or which side of the family), who was not the proverbial "sharpest tool in the shed", had a flat tire. This occured in front of state run mental facility, in a small city. It was on a street that had curbs and storm drains.
He proceeded to get the spare, jack and tools all lined up. He was careful when he removed the lug nuts and placed them safely in the hubcap, which he leaned against the curb. He got the spare tire on the lugs, but while doing that, accidentally kicked the hubcap. The hubcap rolled a short distance along the curb and fell into a deep storm drain. There was no manhole opening at this drain.

My cousin sat down on the sidewalk, holding his head in his hands. He was bemoaning his condition, when an inmate at the mental facility spoke through a barred window. He said, "Hey, mister, why dontcha just take one lug nut off each of your other three wheels? Then you mount your spare tire. You can then drive somewhere to buy more lug nuts and then you will have all your wheels properly bolted on the car."

My cousin said, "That is a great idea. Why are you in there?"

The inmate replied, "I'm in here for being crazy, not stupid!!"
