    Driving conditions very normal. Not rough, no track, simply suburban jungle.

    I'm left wondering if you East coast guys in general have more wear and tear issues with rubber and bushing parts than most because of the harsher winters and salty roads? Cause a rotten FCAB and boot at 47k seems a little abnormal.
