    Hello Everyone, So I took a small roadtrip to mexico. It was in the middle of the night in the highway at over 60mph. There were no signs for a bump. There was a bump and a very big one (big enough to scrape air dam at low speeds). It was too late when I saw it so I didnt even break. The car...
