Well I dropped my truck off yesterday 3/3 for the rear TSB. Intially I went in the week before and spoke to the service writer to order the parts (so I thought) to get my truck in and out ASAP. Fast forward to yesterday, I get there and nothing was ordered. I then asked him how long will this take. He told me they would need to check it out and then it should be ready the following day, which is today 3/4. So I called today and asked when my truck will be ready and he now tells me that the parts never came and that it will be in tomorrow. So now it's a total of three days that they will have my truck and leaves me with no primary vehicle. To top it off I have a platinum coverage and he denied my rental car, saying that they are out of them because of the prius recall. WTF, all he had to do was look at my damn truck and notice that there were 3 leaves, order the damn parts, let me come in on the day we agreed on and put them on. But no......I didn't want to press the issue because I don't want to be denied the rear TSB. Especially since my truck has under 1k miles. So I'm letting it slide this time.
To my next rant: I bought a set of wheels and tires from 4WP and my set came in today. But they are so booked that they have an appointment until Monday? Are you serious, to mount and balance and throw them on my truck takes that long that they can't squeeze me in?
So I ordered some 5100/5125 rears and Toytec AAL. I asked 4WP for install price. He said $275 + 125 for alignment. Forget the alignment part. Im heading to firestone for the lifetime alignment $150. So is $275 a fair price for the shock/aal install? How much should I get it for if not? Unfortunately I have no other options of installing them myself or friends. No tools, no space are my problems. I live in Condo that does not allow working on vehicles and have no friends with experience with things like this. Thanks for the help!
