My car was veering to the right so I decided to take it to a wheel alignment shop to take a look at it. The alignment shop take it for a test drive and came back and told me I need to replace the stabilizer bar bushing. He quoted me a pretty high price for just replacing a piece of rubber on the stabilizer bar.

I stopped by the dealer to see how much the bushing cost just to get an idea of how high the above quote was. The dealer price for the bushing was quite high.

I decided to get a second quote and stop by Good Year Tire. The Good Year guy told me that I need to replace the whole stabilizer bar and that you can not replace the bushing by itself. I just walk out as the first mechanic already quoted me a price for replacing the bushing.

I decided stop by Pep Boys to see how much the bushing cost and maybe I can try to replace it myself if it wasn't too high. When I asked the counter guy for the bushing, he told me they don't have the bushing and that you can't replace the bushing and must replace the whole stabilizer bar (Huh. didn't the mechanic at Good Year told me the same thing?). I then told him I will go to the dealer and get the bushing. He told me the dealer will make me buy the whole stabilizer bar also (Why is he lying? I was just at the dealer and they have it and was going to sell it to me). Is there a conspiracy between the Pep Boys clerk and the mechanic at Good Year?

I decided not to put up with the BS and let the first mechanic replace the stabilizer bushing because I did not want to hear more of these crooked mechanic lies.

PROS: Nothing good.
CONS: Dishonest. Seem to be in conspiracy with other to propagate their lies.
