You'd think I'd learn my lesson. But no, one of my rear drums is locking up way too early. I had a shop do some work on the rear brake lines and figured I'd take it back there. Even if it needs new shoes and wheel cylinders I figure parts and 2 hours labor would run $150. What was I smoking? Does anyone even know where I can buy $40 shoes and $42 wheel cylinders for a 9-inch rear end? And the guy doing the work has been at this 20 years, but it took him 2 hours to put new shoes and cylinders on a 9 inch rear. He's only done it what, 500 times if he's been at this 20 years. If you are going to charge $150/hr labor, just say it, don't hide behind some 'book' that all jobs are quoted from. Has anyone ever said, 'Wow, I'm glad they have that book or they would have charged me 3 times the labor.' Such a crock. It cost me $300 for a new set of shoes and a pair of wheel cylinders. $35 worth of parts at AutoZone. Yes they quoted me 250 and I ok'ed while I was at work, but I was kinda busy at the time and didn't do the math in my head. Sue me, ya'll and your book are still a rip off. For another $100 I could have gotten the explorer disk system and put the on myself. I guess that will wait a while now.
