Re: Front Hub Replacement
I use AutoZone much of the time and yes, I looked thru their puller adds. That is where I found that suppliers do sell "hub" pullers. At least I now know what they look like. Yes, I did look thru their list of rental tools as well. The "hub" puller was not part of that list, at least around here. There part number for a hub puller is #27037 and costs $25.00. Thats that not bad even if I only use it once.
I can remember one time I went to our local Auto Zone and asked for a certain part I had looked up on the net. Lucky for me I had printed out the page which had the cost. When the fellow got me the part and told me how much it costs, I asked why it was more. He looked at my printout and went and got the manager. The manager told me that I looked up the part and got a price based on the store closest to home, which was a different store. He told me that they have the right to price parts and such based on what other stores around them sell those same parts for, hence my part was going to be more. I told him that if I knew that I was always going to spend more at this store, I wouldn't come here anymore. So as long as I look up the part number and get pricing, they would honor that price. But you know, that's not a good practice as some will end up paying more at that store than some other AutoZone. Kinda stinks
Thanks for the suggestion on rentals. I may do some calling to other parts stores and see what they say.
