New rocker panel rust location?
I was putting the snow tires on the van yesterday and was down to the last one (front passenger side) when I heard the tell tale sounds of metal crumbling to pieces. Lowered the van back down and right dead center between the jacking points, the rocker panel crushed in and broke apart to reveal a consistent long term rust point. You could see the progression of the rust down to the paint layer. Anyone ever get rust here. I checked the drivers side which is a known rust through location toward the rear, but it is still pretty solid. I am a little pi$$ed to say the least, but 160,000 km on the odometer and almost 9 years old, whats to say it will get worse or am I just going to start dumpng good money after bad?
