Have them mounted on EAPS? you've been saying you needed tires for 3 months aka the whole summer. put them on EAPs when winter rolls around have them swapped onto your new wheels........assuming new wheels arrive before the snow flies.

Also if you only paid $70 for coils why have you not had them fixed? you've had those stupid things for like a year now too.

I also dont understand Amphenol's whole not hiring you B.S. either. I've put in a good word for you erry damn time. So either I dont have the pull I thought I did around here or they already have someone else picked out....no idea dafuq is up with that.

we might be hiring someone to do exactly what I do in the near future though...might be worth an App? I'll talk to my boss about it.

Haven't had them for a year. Replaced one lower mount (130) right when I got them. Now they need another lower mount and shock ($300-315 shipped)

So your saying unmounted tires off eaps. Then mount summers. That's $60 bucks. Then unmounted and put on new wheels. Another $60. And then mount tires on raps again for another $60. Tell me how that makes sense?

Wheels will be in USA on the 14-15 this month if customs doesn't hold container.

1) so you're at $500 for great suspension?........whats the issue? also the other $300 shock is less than you spent on the wheels you haven't got to have.

2) I'm saying A. Get better friends/hookups and then B. yes do that. I know of at least 3 places here in GR that will mount/balance tires for me for Free-$20 depending how much of a rush I'm in and how busy they are.

3) You've been saying that every month since you ordered them.
