That price-point from ford sounds about right IMO! Do you have a work order to share! That should be with a 2 year parts and labor included!  Z

Allways loved. "Misc charges"...😂

I'm glad that overall this doesn't seem to be a common problem.

Shop supplies.  Pretty standard nowadays.  Might be a profit center, IDK.

Seems reasonable but for the price of the part :( :( :(

Yea. The car drives great. They got rid of the annoying popping that I've had since I lowered it as well. I'm sure I could have figured out what was making the noise, just with 3 kids, 2 dogs, and working 70 hours a week. I don't have a lot of time to mess with it.

Part definitely seemed quite pricey! I almost fell out of my chair. I was told it should be 1300-1500. I get a call the next day and am told the part alone would be 1700. I was not a happy camper.

I must be. My Mastiff is 11 years old and still runs around. I'm told that is quite amazing. I am guessing on his age though. He is a rescue. Truly the best $40 I've ever spent. He's an amazing pup.

Yea... I've been a tech since 04 and seen it off and on ever since. Imo it just looks bad on a work order.
As for that rack price... Yikes... But not exactly surprising
