Re: dealership trying to rip me off

Hi Guys,
First post her for me. I am a Bullitthead from IMBOC.COM

Dealerships .... we call 'em stealerships. Here's how you may be able to fix it.

I have spent some time at my local Ford dealership and have made friends with some of the techs. Guess what? Some of these guys do work on the side at their homes at a fraction of the dealership rate. Check 'em out. You may find the same thing.

On the 94-04s though it's really not that dangerous because the front sprints are nowhere nearly as compressed.
Done this a few times. It's always fun.


BTW You probably just have normal surface rust on your rearend. There is usually nothing you can do about it but clean it. It happens on all new vehicles here in Louisiana. Humidity is a killer. (I work at a dealer)

Most people don't understand pricing, overhead, training, or even how dealerships operate for most parts. I've been on both sides of the industry (aftermarket shop and dealerships) and while it took me a while to adjust and understand some of the things at the dealership, it makes perfect sense. Although you have to be carefull of techs and advisor charging obscene hourly rates for. Sounds like they quoted you for 3 hours @ 100.00 an hour. I would bet Ford's catalog has a different labor time listed.

You can do it bro. That's the whole point of modding. Is the satifaction of putting your own sweat and skinned knuckles(tears) into it. I do as much as my experience allows me. I really want to buy a junkyard mod motor so I can tear it apart and learn how it all works. I have read many books and o understand the thoery,but reading and doing are 2 different things

Re: dealership trying to rip me off

Go see a muffler shop in your area. They should do it for under $100.00
I got my buddy to install them at his muffler shop, $50.00 and 45 minutes later it sounded awesome.

That's what I'm talking about. Once you see how easy it is you will be helping others learn how to do it.
