Last weekend @ Toyota of Carlsbad... Take it in at 7am, yet still have to leave it with them until the next day. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

Since I'm there anyways, I ask them to do a simple check on something - I have a bunch of play at the backside of the p/s box (steering wheel side) and I want to see if there's any way to adjust it out. I explain to them that I have already removed my non-stock steering dampener (so they won't lose any of the bracket parts) & to call should they have a ?'s... They don't call; What they proceed to do is replace the relay rod, jack up what was a perfectly aligned front end & place blame on play in the steering on the idler arm (1 week old), the rag joint (0 play in it) and the lack of a steering dampener (which I told them I removed). In addition to all of this, they 'wash' my vehicle... The kids down the block do a better job - at least they do the windows & don't leave water spots. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />

I went over to Firestone the same day & had them correct the alignment - Dealership claims the TRE sleeves were frozen... Hmmm, kinda funny since they adjust just fine for everyone else. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I DON'T GO TO THE DEALER. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/mrt.gif" alt="" />
