Re: CV Joint - Ball Joint - Brakes

I don't think it's unfair. I myself have worked in garages and seen how they rip people off. How is it then that they get this bad reputation ?

Plus,just because parts are 'freely available on the net' doesn't mean they are any good,I would prefer to buy from a respected source where you have some come back rather than a faceless web adress that could be buying fake parts and selling them as quality ones.

Ask any Vauxhall Cavalier owner that bought a 'new,genuine' front wishbone from a spurious source.

As always there are good and bad in any trade though.

It is (as ever) the minority making the trade as a whole look bad.I'm not pretending that everyone is honest in the trade,but to say that we all rip people off is out of order.

Your entitled to your opinion though of course.
