Then take it to a shop and use your insurance as that is what you pay for. If you are not happy, get new insurance or a new adjuster and go to a better shop.

Dent eliminators in royal oaks alright , private owner who does all the work himself , with a quick turnaround and quality work. They specialize in lease turn ins , small stuff like thos scratches , but also do bigger jobs

You are missing the point, I was asking for recommendations for good shops. Not wanting to get the insurance involved again after the last time both for how they screwed things over (plus it's been over two months since it happened) don't need my insurance going up again. If I have to then fine, but that's not the question.

Either it needs to be filled in and repainted, but the shop that estimated things last time for the insurance co had a bad reputation for screwing up and cutting corners and the shop that I took it to also did a poor job last time. The cover alone is close to $400 for the genuine Ford part, but the used part allegedly cost the insurance company $300ish. They cut corners where ever they can, and the shop was not much better, they had to repaint the cover at least twice before it was almost acceptable.

You guys think I should cancel my hfc and just use toe arms and camber plates to fix the noise level of my car?


Scott you really need to get your car checked out before you spend $800 on ANOTHER. Suspension, and the issues will still be here. Idk how many times this needs to be said.

Or take the chaz approach. And sell it

If your repair was not preformed to your standards, then why did you sign the check from insurance to the shop? You pay insurance for a reason. It is a no fault state and your deductible should be waived. Why not use the tools at your fingertips to get it fixed. All you need to do is use a recommended shop by your insurance. Ask for the check to be wrote to you and repair facility so you do not sign off until it meets your standards.
