    I was waiting for the satisfying part at the end of the story where you go back and confront the shady tech. And perhaps beat him with a brake shoe. Kinda disappointed.

    Got a question tho they were out of the RCA line output converter couldn’t I just splice into the front door speakers?

    Thanks I already bought the whole assembly but maybe now I’ll return it and just change the bearing. I’m still getting a noise so I think I might be changing and alternator in the near future... pulling 14 volts across the terminals right now with the ac and headlights on but we will see
