It would be nice to find out WHY they sheared off, though. Do you have some other suspension issue that caused so much vibration that the lugs sheared off?
Ended up being $135, and a free tow from my insurance roadside assistance. The towtruck driver also got a nice tip for drving 60 miles to come rescue me I'm AMAZED that the rotor was fine. It sort of made a deep mark in the highway for a couple hundred feet. But everything underneath was fine, since the Caliber has some hefty air dams underneath and a lip under the fender. The lip got a bit worn away and my door makes a funny noise when I open it now, but I'm pretty thrilled with the result overall lol.

I do need to get my CV joint replaced, but it's really not THAT bad that it's causing much vibration. The noise that I thought was my CV joint getting worse was apparently the sound of the wheel working its way off.

Last time that wheel was off the car was when my alternator got replaced, and that was at least 6 months ago. It can't really be from that, they should have come off a long time ago in that case. I did check them after they were done, too, and they seemed just fine. So I still have no idea how it actually happened.

Sorry, I was busy juggling two dogs. Logan was fine, but Gavroche was a bit of an ass I'm actually VERY impressed by Logan today. He's definitely proven himself. He was all "Wow, you plan weird trips, but okay, whatever you want" and Gavroche was all pissy and grumpy about everything lol


ETA: My roadside assistance has now paid for itself 125 times

I can so see him sitting there with a happy look like Simple Dog and then Gavroche freaking out in the background with demon eyes hating everyone .
