Dealers love throwing new parts at cars. It saves them time and makes them money.

I've learned over the years that alot of the parts I've replaced bought me little more than piece of mind over re-using the old parts with a thorough cleaning and inspection. Its amazing the service life you can get out of internal parts/ bearings even when non-critical areas are damaged. Theres a certain satisfaction i get out of reusing old parts and saving $$$.

Thanks again for all if your help!
