Naked Girls Wheel Weights and Exhaust Pipe

So yesterday I decided to change the oil and filter on the Z . Well long story short I spilled THERRQt's of oil , crushed the filter and got my finger smashed in the door ( DON'T ASK ) Any way while I was under the Z I noticed the section of exhaust pipe that runs between the exhaust manifold and the cat's have what appears to be_rolled in crimps every few inches which destroys the smoothness of the pipe and reduces it's diameter by about a 1/2 -- 3/4 of an inch . So does any one know what the deal is with these crimps. The pipe is a_straight section so it's not from bending
P.S._ Today I noticed that I through a wheel weight ( don't know when ) on the inside of the tire , well I should say there was no led on the clip but the clip was still on the wheel . Anyway long story short again the wheel weight was knocked off when it hit the upper A frame . You ask how I know this I checked the other front wheel and sure enough that weight hits the A frame as well ( wheel must be cranked over all the way left or right ) has anyone else had this problem? Guess I need to change to stick on weight-------- OK so I lied about the GIRLS -- :D :D :D

That's what I read as well...

Can't really help you on the exhaust, my stock exhaust was gone long ago...

I also pulled off the stock wheel weights fairly early and switched to stick on weights on the inside of the wheel. I'd suggest pulling the stock weights and getting them rebalanced. If you've lost one, the wheel is out of balance, but who knows by how much. Maybe not a big deal if you aren't noticing any vibration though.

Spilling three quarts of oil and crushing the filter and your finger are your just desserts for lying about the naked girls.:P

My best guess about the "crimps" is that they are there to strengthen the pipe. Next time I'm under there I'll take a look.

You're a bad boy Bob! :idea: Redeem yourself by posting pictures of naked girls.
