Well today I went to the dealership to get a alignment and the AC recharged. Left with AC recharged for twice as much quoted, and no alignment.
Well truck was at 6" and added 2" and then truck pulled to the left and steering wheel is 1/8 turn to the right. So i have lived with it forever and finally decided to get it fixed. Well that didnt work out. I have talked to New Country Ford in Saratoga Springs before and they said yes i can align your truck. I get there and they say yes we can do it for $89 + Tax. Then the service manager talks to the tech or someother boss and comes back with $129 + Tax. So ok whatever, bigger tires and lift and they are not experienced i will pay it if they can do it. So I figure that and then also evacuate and recharge the AC. Since it was discharged during the Headstud instalation.
Well that was quoted at $140. So right now figuring $270 with an alignment and recharge. Ok a little high but it will be done.
Leave it there at the dealership for 6 hours and i get a call that they cannot do the alignment because the tires dont fit their machine.( At another dealership when i initially installed the lift in Feb 09 i got charged $60) So they said that they cannot do it but will do an alignment check not a full alignment. (HMMMMMMM what is that? a tire kick?)
Ok so whatever get the AC done then right? So two more hours go by and i get a call. "Well we have evacuated your AC and reCharged it and it still blows hot. We think that it is that the orifice is clogged and we want to evacuate, change the orifice (YG-346 F5UZ-19D990-AB), then recharge and check it and get back to you." Ok well whatever just get something done while you have my truck all day. They do as they said and well AC works. I guess the orifice was clogged and they think it is from the compressor going to ****.
So now i have AC and no alignment done. I asked them that if they did test drive it to look for a boost or exhaust leak that happens around 17#. Well look at the last comment on the report. WTF!!!!!!!! I will never bring my truck back there. And that was from their #1 diesel truck mechanic.
Attached are the scans of my receipts.
