Also, most fires are caused by humans.

Yes, I know this. #geeIwonderwhy?

And where do you think some if not most of that mercury came from?? lessee... Hmmm... 60-odd years of fluorescent bulbs tossed into landfills, perhaps??

One CFL has a minuscule amount... But a few million just poisoned the groundwater, which eventually ends up in the sea.

I'd love it if Cali banned all fluorescents, and LEDs took over for good. Incandescents arent going away, they will just improve; but LEDs will fill the rest of the gaps.

Burning coal for fuel releases a lot more mercury than CFLs ever could and has been going on for a lot longer than fluorescent lamps have existed.

True. But that mercury isn't concentrated in landfills like fluorescents are; nor has it been concentrated in a set of single areas (landfills) for so long.

What year is it? The 1991-92 suspension is just sort of like that. TONS of lift-throttle oversteer. They tuned a lot of this behavior out for 1993 with longer control arms and toe control rods in the rear.

If you're as n00bish a driver as I suspect you are, the problem may be you and not the tires. Check the manufacture date on the tires, and the tread depth with a gauge. If either is out of spec, replace them. If not, look for the problem elsewhere, including the nut behind the wheel.

It would suck to blow all your money on a set of tires (don't put cheap ones it, BTW), and then discover that your real problem is worn out suspension or something.

91.

\MR2OC suggested lower tie rods based on what I said about approaching on-ramps at decent speed... It has ST sway bars and an LSD trans. And tires balder than Sanjays chrome dome.

It kind of likes to "crab walk" to the outside of the corner until I scrub off some speed.

It sounds pretty damn burly I'm probably going to stick with it... Muffler swap will be one of the last things I do for sure.
