well............

I went in to get a flat fixed and figured what the heck, ill get an allignment too, it needs it pretty bad.. well that turned out bad, left and right, upper and lower ball joints, all bad.. and im talkin real bad.. they tried to tell me my tie rods were bad also, but i dont think so.. hardly any play so i left them.. Les Schwab wanted a grand to do my ball joints.. i said screw that, bought them at checkers and took it to a local shop here.. after the labor, parts, and re-alignment, i got it all done for $560 bucks.. sound reasoable to you??? also, while i was there, turns out, the shop that did my lift didnt install a drop pitman arm and this other bracket either.. just so happens, the mechanic had them laying around, and gave them to me.. so i walked away with some new to me parts.. i guess you cant beat the price..

Sounds like you found a good shop there to give you stuff. Shops like that are far and few between.

Sounds to me that a couple missing parts hurt you in a bad way, glad to hear that you got it fixed.

I always thought extra parts ment that they were ment for a diffrent truck.

I'd say you got a real fair deal, even without the free parts Rob. The extras are a nice bonus though...
