You'd really trust her holding the beers? They'd be gone before you turned back around

Did you crank them all the way up Sarah?

Someone correct me on this, but I thought the t-bars were only for minor adjustments. And if they are cranked all the way up, it causes issues with the front drive axles?? Unless you had a plow installed, then the extra weight would compensate.

Yesterday we had a Jaguar come in for an oil change and tire rotation. While looking the car over I noticed that the belt was all sorts of messed up (just like mine ). So I suggested that she let us change it. That sucked, but I got it done.

Then an Astro van came in for a new fuel filter because the thing won't stay running. So, I put that in for him, didn't fix the problem. Oh well, I'm just a monkey that turns wrenches.

After that an Accord came in with a stuck caliper, that she said we did. We said screw it and put on new pads for her, and fixed the caliper for free. We also turned the rotors and exchanged the brake fluid/bled the brakes. We charged her for that. That one was fun.

you can just crank the bars, people do it all the time but you need an alignment and it rides like poop because you take away travel.

Hooked up my new scanner to see why the SSS light is on, and got:

- C1226 - right front sensor signal erratic
- C1233 - right front wheel speed sensor open/shorted

I will pull the wheel off this weekend to inspect the WSS connector and wire, otherwise, Santa will be bringing me something from Timken. In July.
