I am not sure what you are talking about with this $2000 bit. Can you explain better?

Are you replacing the heads as well? Just to do head studs you shouldn't have a core charge at all. Unless you messed your heads up you shouldn't even be replacing your heads just to install head studs.

Is the truck still running? Are you just wanting head studs before you blow head gaskets or have you already blown head gaskets and they are afraid you warped your heads. If every thing is running fine and you are just simply wanting head studs (ARP's etc...) before you do blow a head gasket then there is NO need for new heads. There should be NO reason for that shop to even think about putting new heads on your truck. If I am understanding you correctly, you might want to RUN to another shop and get second opinion.

I was told the same thing from RCD. They said if ur heads were bad you would have to pay the 2000.00 core charge for the new heads. I can't understand how they could be so bad that they couldnt be milled down.

a core charge is something that should be repaid once the core(old part) is returned. I don't know if maybe they are ordering new heads before you bring it in or what? Kinda confusing to me even if the heads were replaced you shouldn't be paying for a core charge because they take your old heads and return them to whereever they were bought.

From the very beginning of this thread when I saw RCD I got nervous for ya. I have read to many posts on here about problems from them. Go get a second opinion.
