Re: Castor/Camber Kit?
Yes it seems to be protocol for pedders to over estimate the crap outta your car for them to generate business. Its good scare tactics for their advantage also. You dont have to go with what they say, its not the be all and end all of inspections. Id be getting an independant quote from somewhere else.
Plus from what Ive heard, the EF-L XR's all came out with castor/camber kits from factory. I might be wrong on this but as everyone else said, unless its dumped on its guts then it doesnt need it.
And yes, I was also told my rack ends were badly worn, but considering I have a brand new steering rack and power steering pump fitted 4 months before with 3 year warranty, I wasnt gonna give pedders the satisaction of bending me over for another 2k of unecessary things I didnt need doing. I ended up doing most of the easy things myself.
Reason why I went to them in the first place was to confirm my suspicions about certain areas of my suspension. Some of the things they said needed attention were utter crap. The only thing I need is new front shockers as the ones I have in there now may have started to collapse and leak. I only know this beacuse of the clunking noise I get when excellerating hard or cornering to the right.
You end up knowing all these things by experience in the end and getting fed up of getting ripped off.
