I build single family residential house and also have my brokers license and to put it into an example so you could understand if you are not effeected by it...

what ever your income is cut it by 1/2 to 2/3's and you will have an idea of how it effects those of us who are in housing construction. In some cases even much worse, Just about all of Sourthern Cali, Vages and Sarasota Florida have been hit the hardest with sale and prices dropping fast and foreclosure rates in those areas of unheard numbers. Than add into it the amount of houses in the construction phase and developments started before the crunch where property was bought at a premium and there are many builders gone belly up and lost everything of which i know 2 personally. Now along with the builders you have all the trades involved in building, excavating, concrete, framing, sheetrock, paint, roofing and siding and the list goes on. Now they have lost there bread and butter too.

Some houses are moving and February saw a 2.9% increase over January although 23% below Same time last year.

So the easy way to up it is if you make $100,000... try living on 40 or 50K now.. lol

That should give you an idea of how it has hit some people in the industry...

    • '06 Bruin 4x2 - broken drive shaft housing - options?

      Hola from Costa Rica - I have an '06 Bruin 4x2, and yesterday the drive shaft housing broke, and I'm wondering if anyone's been through this before, and what are my options to repair it. The housing broke pretty cleanly, just before the differntial mounting plate, the big plate with the 4 bolts holding this part of the housing to the rear differential.  This caused the rear axle to pull away a little and drop the drive shaft connection.  Luckily I was going slow at the time and stopped ASAP to assess what happened. Since parts are hard to come by where I live, and 3-5x more expensive than in the US, I'm wondering if I can just have the housing welded back together.  This part of the housing looks to have been forged as one piece, and the break looks pretty clean.  I think I should be able to just re-engage the driveshaft to the differential, and weld the housing back together, probably with a little reinforcement around this section.  Apparently this part of the housing is not too heavy a gauge metal, but I think it should take a weld just fine without further damaging the housing. Any opinions, advice, suggestions, etc. welcomed! Pura vida, Ray

      My wife has a well used 325 Trail Boss and recently she noticed there is a distinct rhythmic clicking or popping noise that sounds like its coming from the chain/ sprocket area. Increases with speed and happens in fwd or reverse.
      I jacked up the rear of the quad and rotated the tires and there is no sound when the drivetrain is unloaded. Any suggestions on what this could be or how to troubleshoot? Im new to 4-wheelers, so this might be something pretty simple but I just dont have much experience working with them.
      Would appreciate any help or suggestions

      August 23, 2009 - Princeton, MN:High Performance Design is proud to introduce their new Polaris RZR Differential Housing.These new housings are cast from 356 aged and heat treated aluminum. This alone would make them twice as strong as the die cast originals. They are a minimum of 30% thicker and at least twice as thick in the pinion to output areas. It is highly unlikely that these housings will
