    thanks janster, so my interpretation from that is if my sensors areny tweaking, the computer won't know... therefore with the 02 box i should, theoretically, be good

    I know NJ isn't as picky as PA is..... but I would do some more research to be sure. Find some offroad and/or car clubs in your area and see what others run into.

    I'm surprised they don't have a NJ transportation code online to look at. And maybe there is, I just didn't spend too much time looking.

    unbelievable


    instead of looking for missing persons or finding rapists, NJ is worried about rubbing tires?

    Actually, I wouldn't argue againest that at all. The sway bar is a functional part of the suspension - prevents sway/body roll). If a tire is rubbing on it, than the sway bar can'd do it's job properly and could be a safety issue and/or drivability issue. That's perfectly legit.....

    I'd argue big time. vehicle inspections on a new vehicle are nothing short of a big giant waste of county/state/federal resources.

    I've been to NJ, half the damn cars on the road should be scrapped and turned into refrigerators.


    see, some jackass nitpicker failed you for a candyass minimal rub situation.

    LAME.

    People make their vehicle legit and then change what they want after the inspection, thus making the inspection candyass, and POINTLESS.

    So what are you saying?

    You're againest inspections because they're a waste of time? Or do you want them to be more frequent to get rid of all the cars on the road (the ones you mentioned that need scrapped)?

    According to NJ (briefly reading about their inspections) - new vehicles don't have to be inspected until they're 4 years old.

    If you think NJ is bad.... try living in PA.

    I wonder why SilverSeven (has an 07) had an inspection...?


    Again, I'll state for the record that the inspections are POINTLESS. Someone will fix w/e wont pass the inspection, then put it back the way they want it after the inspection is completed.

    Yeah tell me about it. I lived in PA for a year and a half. I kept all my vehicles registered in Florida. If I got pulled over I just played stupid and said I worked for Verizon that they frequently sent me to PA for business and that I preferred to drive than fly.
