sorre i thought i'd juss have a whinge since i went to ford to get some stuff fixed, and they said my front shocks are gone, wanted 1000 bucks to supply and fit a pair of shock absorbers to the front, sound ridicious huh? pedders offerd a set for 350 plus labour, y the hell is ford parts so expensive, espeacially for my truck

LOL, man coz they are is the answer, i too have gotten crazy prices, read:
1 x normal rotor for front of my car $512 for one, not pair, trust me!
1 x rear muffler for zorst was over $800, non fitted.
1 x gear shifter $575.

This is the point where i walk out in disgust; i mean i got slotted rotors from dba for the pair for like $500, muffler fixed properly for nothing thru mate, gear shifter (brand new) $310 thru wrecker..

Its insulting. :idea:
