i meant tommorow..tyres are very little worn out..but dont know how to explain..(those 2 things that goes from gearbox to wheels )are on the end so they sometimes just fall off from wheels..and that is because caroserie is expended..i dont know if there is to buy front lower strut brace or if someone has done it alone..

carroserie means coachwork. you mean the driveshafts fall off. the strut is moving out and splaying out at the bottom. you must have worn suspension and springs. worn springs will force the wheels out.:)

sorry sumplug..i dont understand you..yes driveshifts fall of..i checked suspensions and springs and everithing seems ok..they are also new..many mechanics told me problem is in coachwork(it expended because car was crashed...)so i want to know if there are strut braces but under the coachwork..

I heard that if you lower your car too mauch this can also cause problems unless you change the whole suspension set up. 40mm was the practical maximum on a Tipo if I remember. Anything more and you should expect exessive tyre, ball joint wear etc.
