anyway i pick the car up and they changed the rear end link and thats all they charged me for
they installed the springs and shocks but DID not charge me to install them LOL??????
To correct anyone: he says he got springs and shocks.
NOT using stock shocks...
But it sounds like they stole your new shocks and left your shitty oem shocks in, that's why they are bottoming out/making that noise.
Something doesn't add up here.....
dude no way did they steal my shocks
but yes at first i was skeptical as **** because i thought they stole everything and didnt put ANYTHING in.
so i checked and sure enough the red eibach sportlines springs are in and so are the black eibach shocks that came with the kit.
i can feel the shocks working because before i was lowered on pro kit for like 4 years with stock shocks and there were all blown out..the car has 117k on it with the eibach pro kit and stock shocks so im telling you the new shocks and springs are definately in there not to mention the car is sitting lower.
either way i dont trust mavis but i had no choice..no way in hell i can afford like 600 dollars for a mechanic to jerk me around to install freaking struts. i drove the car around and the noises arent even that bad anymore only if you hit like potholes and such otherwise its stiff feels fine but still clunks when u hit nasty *** bumps but the roads suck here anyway.
