i was gonna, but it took madd long for them to get it and its chillin at the shop now. plus this snow shit makes it quite complicated to do any work, and it cant be held off any longer. these guys are awesome with prices so fuk it, i may as well just have them do it. its goin into the shop tomorrow mornin.

damn I did mine on my own at my garage on jack stands.
kudakev97SE is right
it makes you appreciate it more doing it yourself

and whatever price they tell you before hand will probably be a little off once they get at those cat bolts. holy shit those were a pain in the ass.


also erynn find out if the price includes re-torqueing the nuts cause you are supposed to after you drive on it for a few

and also make sure they will re-torqe them for free if you ever get a leak

damn... 10 bolts, and 3 hours of labor? do they stop for coffee and ciggys during this break? maybe drop the kids off at the pool? that's a joke! honestly, it'll take a weekend mechanic that long, but not someone who does this for a living.

THe guys that put mine in also said that the cat bolts were hard as shit to get off.
thats what happened yesterday.. they hadda heat up the bolts to get them off, then wait madd long for them to cool before they could finish working. it took a while. but they only charged $100 for labor :)
