I got my wheels put on today, and I'm watching with a salesman through the window as it gets lowered and watching to make sure they will clear (31's at stock height) and he was like "its close" and I said "Yeah, well it will do for now, and I can always get a shackle lift later" He goes "Won't a shackle lift make it lower?" I almost slapped him. I was like "Think about it num nuts, *lift*"

They certainly don't put the brightest in there now do they?

Sounds like the guys at my local NAPA. I went in to get a new harmonic balancer and they swore up and down that I had to buy a whole new crank shaft assembly. I had to look up the balancer myself to show it to them. People like that shouldnt be allowed to work in auto parts stores.

Pepboy's employees are geniuses compared to my local AutoZone. Those gals are really stupid! Yes most of them are women and not the kind that work on their vehicles. If they were at least hot I wouldn't *****!
I manage an auto parts store and its good to see no-one complain about my company yet. You can't judge an entire company by the employees at one store. Although there are quite a few unqualified people standing behind the parts counter at parts stores across the nation. Training and experience are the key. Ask for an ASE certified parts person the next time you enter a parts store. I have 5 ase certified counter men and assure you they can handle any question you throw at them.
Wheelin down lifes highway, aimin for the potholes!!!!
At the body shop for resto
Waiting for Mods
PICS to come
No offense, puddle jumper, because I know you are trying to do the right thing, and I commend you for it , but, for the record, I have dealt with many "ASE Certified" "Mechanics" that are total dopes. Training/Studying just isn't a replacement for experience/knowledge.
Like I said, no offense, I'm sure your parts store is well above average!
I work at a Dealership- Trained techs by the factory, Well I can tell you- some of them are LAME. I end up doing some of the repairs or diagnostic work because they are lazy and don't give a damn. I have to keep the customers coming back so I end up working alot more than I should have to. Each person is different- One of our parts counter guys doesn't know a crank from a cam. Just depends on who you get!!!
i hope you double checked your lugs on that jeep.
i once had tires put on there and later found out that two rims were not torqued properly.
i had already driven 2000 miled.
i guess it's my fault for not following up on the flunkies work...
i know what you mean i bought a spare rim there and got them to mount my 33 inch badly worn spare tire on it and they put about 5 wheel weights on the front of the rim, that really looks good, i made them redo it
I once heard a story from a EMT that a tire tech guy from a tire store got his hand caught in the tire changer. A few hours later they got called back to the same store when the same guy was showing his friends how he did and got it caught again.
