*EDIT* Just looked back and it was $680 they quoted him

Yeah he told me it only took him a little over an hour to do it himself. Man, if I knew I could get paid $500/hr at the stealership I'd have signed up for auto tech a long time ago!

Just a check in lol Yes Ford Quoted me $680 for labor alone then was going to charge another $110 for alignment then another $100 for the camber bolts(which i didn't need).
They tried to say that it was 2 and a half hours per corner! i literally laughed at him on the phone when he said that.
Anyways i ended up doing it at a buddies house on his driveway in 1 hour 15 mins and we were talking alot in between that.
FORD = CROOKS
But they can get away with it because there are alot of people out there that don't care and will drop the cash on it because either they are lazy or lack mechanical ability(=
