I own a 2002 Grand Am GT. I did a foolish thing the other day. I hooked a chain to the rear end of my car and the other side to another car and tried to pull him.. I spun the tires a bit but nothing. The next day as I was driving down the road it felt like my back wheels were going to fall off. It was hard to steer as well as a feeling of wobbling as I hit bumps. I checked the lugs and they are all tight. Any hints as to the problem???? Please.

no, it comes from the factory like that.

you didnt chain it to the rear axle, did you? :doh:

What did you tie the chain to? Please please please tell me it wasn't the sway bar, control arms, etc. sounds like you bent something important.

Oh, and buy a truck. :D

^what he said, I've done alot of stuff with my GA that a car really shouldnt do, towing another vechicle isnt one of them, unless you have a proper tow hitch like me!!!

DOH I used the rear axle. I guess I messed up big time didn't I? Any hints on how to correct this?
