I meant the cost of a simple axle compared to a torsion axle, not the labor.

Back years ago I had a Chrysler mini van and I had a front end alignment done.
The Shop charged for repacking the front wheel bearings.
Well these were cartridge bearings and if they lubricated them they also ruined them.
Which to have them do replace the now destroyed bearings or refund the charge for packing them?
Many shops just charge for whatever they think they can get away with.
There is a name for these people ----- Crooks.

Brake rotor, drum?
Maybe, but I suggest you run, not walk away.

Paul is shaking his head. Brake motor = brake rotor, fine, got it. He says shoes and pads don't exist in the same system. One or the other.


$600 seems steep to Paul, once an auto mechanic and still our main tech guy here.


Also, it's only 2 wheels, and likely gets lighter wear after all, lighter than a car, less use than a car.
