EF body structure

more specificly, my NFII

How strong are the body's in these things?

REason i ask is after towing an enormas car trailer fully loaded, when going up and down bumps in the road i could feel the body flexing.. ie the front doors were moving slightly in and out.. But atleast my back doors didnt open up like crappadores do!

Best wishes

:fmad::fmad::fmad: If you doors are flexing..... HOW MUCH ARE YOU TOWING!!!!! :fmad::fmad::fmad:[/B]

You might want to consider unloading a tad... just a suggestion.

Does your struggle towing these door warping loads??




Take it easy... on your car

never exceed your tow rating!!

Just be thankful that the chassis only flexed, and didn't buckle!
