:headscratch: WTF? That price for the sway bar end link is ridiculous. It doesn't take more than 30 minutes (10 minutes if you have the right tools and you know what you're doing) and the part is cheap.

You were lucky that tHE Bob!!111 was so nice to help out. Those repair bills would have been a small fortune if you were going out on your own.

First class guy, that BoB!!111 is.. B)

Ohh.. For the month of June, I got my allignment done, $49.99. The steering is much better.

In the works.. Brakes and a new belt (sqeeky right now). Doing those myself with a friend of mine. He is going to show me the ropes after he is done tearing up his 1976 Ford F-250.

My car friggin rocks. More reliable than any econobox/foreign thing you can throw at it. :wink: :thumb:

I plan on buying a new set of yokohama avid touring tires soon. Like, before winter.
