      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Vehicle - 2006 Mazda 3, 104,000 miles.

I recently had brake pads and rotors replaced on all 4 wheels.  Also had 2 new tires put on.

After I got the car back I started to notice an intermittent rattle coming from the back end. Seems to be coming from middle of the back end but perhaps a little toward the passenger side.  It doesn't do it all the time.  Most often it happens in the morning when I first go to drive the car and only happens at low speeds although not all the time.  When I apply the brakes the sound stops and it doesn't happen if I'm in reverse, only when driving forward.  The rattle is pretty loud and when it first starts but does lessen after driving for a little and goes away entirely at higher speeds (above 30 mph).

I've gone under the car and did a quick look but didn't see anything obvious although I have no idea what to look for so thats not surprising.  

So any thoughts on what it could be?  It started right after I got it back from the shop when the brakes and rotors were done.  I plan on bringing it back in but just thought I'd pick your brains for a minute first.

The new pads are rattling in the brackets would be my guess. Either a sub par set of pads was installed that did not come with new shims or the brackets that hold the pads are worn out. It is pretty easy to figure out if this is the problem. Jack up a wheel and whack the tread with a good sized hammer. If you hear the rattle than apply pressure the in inbord pad with your finger and repeat. if you still hear it do the same with the out board pad. If either make the noise go away you found the problem.

Well you were right.  I took the car into the shop over the weekend and had them take a look at things.  The shims that were there were being allowed to rattle and move around due to a part malfunction.  Not exactly sure what failed but the shop repaired/replaced everything under warranty.

    • seen a robin yesterday...  
    • I work nights, so don't see any weekday games, but of the weekend games I have seen, tonight was the best of the year.
    • I’ll second the Hustler recommendation.  I have a fastrak 54” and couldn’t be happier. Put about 350hrs on the last 4 years. Had a 42” JD before this one, and darn near cut my mowing time in half. If you got the hustler route, get the front flex springs.... they ar worth the money
    • I just don't like the look for some reason. I also have a full mount and went with a closed mouth. 
    •   I have heard that from most Taxidermist.  But, it's really cool for the Nonhunting relatives and their kids when they come over for Holidays to see the teeth!  
    • Thanks for the input, my lawn is very flat just a ton of maple trees! 
    • Off to the dehydrator this venny goes!! Num num!
    • I got a hustler raptor SD last year with a 54" deck. I cut about 2 acres also and my mowing time has be cut down by half. I chose to go with a 54 instead of a 60 beside cause of uneven ground and road ditch. zero turns don't side hill very well so if you have hilly ground I would try one out. I used two of my neighbors one was a john deere witch I like a lot and a country clipper  I didn't like that one.  It had a joy stick that controlled the drive  I thought it was very touchy mowed my yard twice with it      
    • Thats not a natral pose for a black bear leech 
    • Well the 42” 14 year old craftsman LT1000 is heading to the hunting camp so I need a new one for Home. I cut about 2 acres with lots of tree so a zero turn only makes sense, looking 52 - 60” deck and have about a 5K budget to work with. Ariens ikon has me intrigued but also looking at a couple used stand up Wright’s with less than 200 hrs. Also looking at the z series. Thoughts?
