You come buy them soon and I'll give you some SS/SC Springs for free. That'll lower you a bit.

I got all kinds of "are you insane?" looks from people on my way to Kent today for passing them at the legal speed limit while they were going 35 in a 55.

It's like people forget that it snows here every year and lose the small amount of driving ability they had before.

Don't have pics on me, but if you're seriously interested, I could get pics.

I'd say that 2 wheels have like 80% left... and then the other two have 50% left.

If you put down the rear seats... all 4 will fit. I've done it 2 or 3 times with my car now.

Drew if i was you i would get those wheels bro, if anything get brakes and rotors and thats all you should need for awhile unless there is some major problem with the way your car drives.

Just got new tires on the Grand Prix, so snow's not a problem here, although it does suck at work. I work at a car dealership, so everytime I got to grab a car, I gotta clean all the snow off the damn thing first. It's a real pita.

I can't even tell what half that says... but their pricing looks ridiculous. I could fix that crap for a fraction of the cost... I have before on my own car.

Trans Fluid - $50 at most... probably don't need.
Brake Fluid - $5 maybe... probably don't need.
Front Rotors - $160-$220... probably don't need.
Rear Rotors - $150-$200... probably don't need.
Front Pads: $79
Rear Pads: $69
Sway Bar End link can be had from $50-$150

Most of that stuff, you shouldn't need on an 08, yet. I think that shop is just trying to make some money. For the rotors, you can probably get away with getting them turned. I've got stock LSJ rotors that I'll give you for free if you buy the wheels and tires, actually. Used... but I'll have the turned before you pick up the wheels and tires.

I agree with this assessment. They are trying to take advantage of you.

That is why I stay away from NTB, everyone that I have talked with has had trouble with them. Drew, have you ever done a brake job? It is not really that hard. I did two this year alone. I even painted the calipers. What is that Tranny fluid made of, gold? A good filter kit and fluid should not be that much, even if you get full synthetic. I would hate to see what they would charge for my truck or the old car, they both hold 12 quarts.

Get another estimate. The Goodyear store in town is usually good. The owner is a gear head.

Oh, and what snow. I have Blizzak LM 60's on the Cobalt now. Everyone hates me due to the amount of water and stuff those tires throw back. They are worse than my truck with the tires that I put on that thing.

I have LM22s. They are the bomb. Getting a set of lm60 for the front, and moving the lm22 to the back.

And Drew, dude....if you need help doing some of the work, I can help you. Gotta' learn to do this on your own; You'll save tons of dough in the end.

And at least you don't have a SC blocking the oil filter cap *shift eyes*
