    Default Dealership = Funny Story

    So my cousin has an 04 duramx 4x4 and he needs some new front drive axles so we went to this auto parts store called Parts World. They have everything you can think of for many vehicles. Anyways we went in there and they had the complete set up with the boots and every thing for $55 a peice. Bought those and on the way home we drove by a dealership and stopped at the service department just for shi*s and giggles. The guy looked up the part on the computer and then he said this aint gonna be good. 750 each.. Me and my cousin looked at eachother and started busting up laughing becuase it was so ridiculouse. The guy didnt know what to do so he just got up and left.

    It should be illegal to try and screw people out of their hard earned cash like that! Crooks!

    I love GM and Chevrolet as much as the next guy but some of their prices are too out there. Single high performance exhaust system $837 (with installation), dual exhaust system $932 (with installation), air intake kit $649

    what is really sad is that the auto parts store made money on that. Just think what the dealership is making.....

    That is an EXCELLENT point! Haha. I don't know whether to laugh at this or shake my head in disgust. Like Stephan said, good thing you went to the right place first.
