Well .... all the questions . all the reserch. all the pricing . all the planning don't mean a thing
if the people you let work on your truck don't CHECK AND MAKE SURE THEY HAVE ALL THE PARTS BEFORE THEY RIP IT APART . So after calling blackstock two weeks ago and made an
apointment for today calling wed to confirm all parts were in . After hanging around orangville
for the day. They told me an hour ago that there were no camber bolts in the kit and they would not be able to finish the truck today I would have to come back tomorrow.
And the service manager say's to me ... We have not done a drop kit in a while ....

But it's ok .... They said they were SORRY !!!

Thanks for Letting Me Vent ...
