They call this morning and start talking about my front struts and how they're fine *now* but if I don't replace them, they'll start sounding as bad as my back ones. I ask him what about the back ones, and he says even after they replace the back ones, there is only a 50% chance the loud rattling banging that comes from my rear passenger wheel will go away, since there are little rubber stoppers in there that are damaged that they for some reason are not going to replace.
He kept talking on and on about something else to do with the front of my car and I had to literally tell him to stop talking about it since he wasn't going to be doing any work on it anyway. He gave me the "you're a fool" sigh, and told me after the road test they will determine if changing the rear strut will solve the banging problem. What gets me about that is, changing the little parts that are contributing to the banging must be way less lucrative than changing the front struts, since he's all pushing and prodding to do preventative maintenence on the front struts, but will not do necessary maintenence on the stoppers and whatnot in the rear.
I was a fool to go to college.
