That's good to know...I really did not want to mess with it if I did not need to...
they did get new brakes right! as well as my bigger tires on the moduflex wheels aligned perfectly. Rides better now than it ever has...
I'm going to at least chat with em though for sure

Re: Bilstein Strut install question

Dude, spend some time online, talk to people in your area and find a good indy mechanic around there, someone that actually takes pride in their work and does not pull stupid moves like that. I love my mechanic and his prices are FAR below dealers, when I had my acura they wanted 700$ to install new shocks and struts, went to him and he did it for 200$ out the door.

I do need one for the Jeep...I do like having the dealer within 10mins of me though for the convenience...I had to drive an hour for a good indy to work on my last car...VRT Jetta...

Re: Bilstein Strut install question

They are alignment tabs, not load bearing
