Default Crappy Ground Wire

Ian-PT-GT brought up the fact about this factory ground wire being so bad. When I checked out mine I discovered that it had rotted away and was no longer in one piece. It runs from the passenger side strut housing to the block and is attached by a 13 mm bolt. I replaced mine with the same #8 red wire I used for my hyperground. If I were you guys I would check this ground wire out as I would suspect that this wire will rot out on everybody.

I have hyperground installed and didn't know if that wire was neccesary or not. Felt it couldn't hurt and it was one more place to ground the block. A lot of folks haven't gone the hyperground route so it may be more of a concern for them.
