this is getting old...

OK, so my car actually isn't fixed... the control arm has been replaced, but apparently, the shop didn't inspectthe rest of the affected area... and now my car is making bad noises when i go over bumps in the road. My bet would be the strut, but i dunno. Im pissed, especially given how much fucking money they charged me for the supposed repair.

But in the end, i won't be paying anymore, because the cost to finish repairing it is going to come from the shop that fucked up the job to begin with. And really, being that the replacement control arm on my car was used, i didn't get off cheap. If i had a brand new control arm, i would call it cheap.

hey, why did you have to get a new control arm? i think i may need one b/c my wheel shakes really bad and it pulls to the right. the side i hit it on.
