You know on a side note to prices on pads and such. I used to work at the Cold Lake Can tire, in the autoparts section. The saddest part of it all was when a "Cold Lake Local" would come in and ask for the CHEAPEST brake pads, meanwhile standing there with his 5 kids. Now, being me, I would look at him, look at his kids, and say "are you sure you want to put that crap on your car, knowing you have kids in your car".
Now, being a parent, i think we have an OBLIGATION to do whatever it takes to keep our kids safe, that includes putting GOOD brake pads on our cars, in order to safetly stop to avoid an accident, or to avoid hitting a kid that decides to run out in the road. Am i being silly here? Do i make sense?
Also, when a "local"..comes in asks for shocks...and i tell him they are any where from Ex. 55 bucks to 110 each, and he says..."GIVE ME ONE"...ONE? YOU WANT ONE SHOCK??? holy crap man..ONE SHOCK? well if you have crappy brakes and one good shock on that car..well i'm not asking for a ride, and well, i think your kids are better off walking.
my 2 cents...i'm done now..LOL
