Death wobble above 45mph, brakes beyond metal to metal, tires worn passed the threads, brake lines stretching and cracking. And having to blow in a disgusting breathalyzer at the same time which the customer conveniently didn't have any extra mouthpieces.

Combination of both. Demand is so high that dealers will kill for them, they'll pay bout as much as its worth retail and we don't have to touch them. Just sold 2 last week.

Lifted dodge dually that had 2" spacers on the hub for eagle 20" dually wheels. What they didn't realize is that the OEM studs are longer than the spacer!

Just replaced all 8 injectors in a nice lml that the transport company's driver filled up with gas and tried driving it here.

Caleb had a truck in for trans build or something and found this: https://m.facebook.com/BlackoutPerfo...pe=3&source=48

Sometimes the worst offences are from shops that know that what they sold the customer was junk but they did it purely for the profit margin. I also thought that being a tech for the largest pipeline company in the country would be 100% jimmy rig free, but unfortunately, that isn't the case either haha.

My most recent in my shop though was a 05 dodge that had driven for about 6 months with a grinding and jumping in the front end while turning. Never got under it to just check it out. The axle u-joints were disintegrated, ball joints disintegrated, front diff had no fluid left in it, brake rotors were cracked, only half the exhaust was still there, and the turbo was stuck. All with only 55k miles.

I popped my hard line out of the clips at the track once and the idler cut it clean in half. Had to have my truck put on a roll back bc it lost all most all its fluid...
