Well, they changed the beads from 8 oz to 10 oz, and we found both track bar links loose, so they replaced them free labor because they should have seen them before, and that was it...no more shaking on that tire.

I am not sure if it was the added oz of beads, or the links, but my guess is it was the links....We also found the shocks t be weak, but I did not replace them yet. Now all is beter!

Likely those trackbars. Glad you got it figured out. That shop sounds helpful.

New member here, and just found this thread.

I also had an "experience" with this place. I took a trailer tire in for a slow leak. After working on it for a while they couldn't fix it but still charged me $15.

Not nearly as serious as yours, but it didn't seem right. I know they had time in it, and I paid it without conflict. They won't get anymore of my bussiness.

Hi. Thanks for joining and commenting. The kind of experience you describe is pretty much what I would expect from this place. Tell folks that you know in the area about your experience and to avoid the place. Maybe the owners will get the message at some point, but I doubt it.
