    I checked.

    I have heard if you go too far you can make them weak. I took my car out after I did the grinding and got it up to 135-140MPH. Laid into the brakes pretty good. Made sure I was on a lightly traveled section of highway east of Denver.
    Held together as I expected. But I wanted to make sure. If they were going to break...I wanted to have them break out there....where I could coast to a stop.
