A lot of people buy the parts themselves or find someone who can get a discount. What did they work on?

Basically all of my front left suspension steering, here's the long list of what they replaced.

Strut, control arm, steering knuckle, hub assembly, tie rod(inner and outer), sway bar link, CV axle, wheel, and a transmission sensor that the CV took out when the inner joint of it detached and flung around.

I work at a parts store, the dealer was the only option within a week of getting all the parts unfortunately, otherwise I definitely would have done that.

Damn. Well, maybe it time to sell out and buy japanese. Civics are some of the few cars you just put gas in a change the oil until you get tired of them and upgrade. Same with corollas. Domestic cars would be the same if the manufacturers didn't use subpar material. New cars however are trash in general. Recalls are more common than gun violence.

Yeah, no, I refuse to do that. If this thing has any other issues I'm selling it and getting either an older GM b-body, or maybe a lexus SC400/LS400, if I can find a clean one.

I say go for it. The GS300 with the 2jz motor is also a good deal if you can find one that hasn't been beat to hell. Just be aware of the costs for premium fuel and synthetic oil.

Really should have just gave it to the dealer. I think its worth the money if you save yourself the stress and time. But I agree, no point in pussying out now.

That's what I did the first time, and paid through the fucking nose for it, spent over $2k on not a ton of suspension work. Mainly because they raped me on parts, I paid over $1500 in parts alone, which is why this time I said fuck it and did it myself, because no way in hell was I doing that again.

This can't have been worth it.

And if nothing else it was a good, if costly, learning experience on several levels.

I agree, I would love nothing more than to pitch it off a cliff, but, I've already got a good chunk sunken into it, and selling it would be basically throwing that away because I would get none of what I've put into it back, although I still feel like I should've just put a can of stop leak in it and sold it when I did have the chance. Even then though, I'd have already sunk a large chunk into it that I still wouldn't have gotten back. So at least now I can drive it and get something out of it for all the money I dumped into it. Although, at the first sign of more trouble it's going out the door.
