    It's because they usually include the bracket with the caliper now, which is stupid as hell. All they're going to do is reman your caliper and clean your old bracket for resale. So, like in your case, you wound up with a spindle that has a bolt snapped off in it. Now you need a spindle. If it's a spindle with a press in wheel bearing, then you might as well buy the loaded one, and take it up the rear. Places like Auto Zone, O'Reiley's, and Advance have hilarious core charges on top of it. I like when you rent tools from them, and the employee who received them last didn't inspect them. Now you've got a broken tool that you can't use, and you're going to have to convince them that you're not the one who broke it in order to get your money back. This is exactly what happened to me at Auto Zone last year when I had to change a head gasket on my Caterpillar 950. The torque wrench I got from them would break loose at like 15lbs. lol. That's probably not going to seat a head gasket on an industrial front end loader.

    We're going to 107 today and flirting with 100 all weekend into the weekend. Luckily I'm headed camping near the coast where it's supposed to be mid 70's. First trip with the new pup!!
    I'll take the heat 10 times out of 10. Sun tan. Burn fat. Can actually work in it. All you gotta do is hydrate. Cold, on the other hand? Everything's frozen to the ground. Can't find anything. Have to condition your hands, which sucks worse and worse as you get older. Have so much on that you can barely work on anything. Everything mechanical stops working. Come down with a cold that doesn't go away for a week. It's a no brainer for me.

      • I had a doctor's appointment on Wednesday, and even though I was the only patient there, they forgot about me for an hour, until I threatened to leave

        • I'm always the one to bump the complaint thread it seems, but it was raining in my house last night. We had this huge storm in July that forced us to have to replace our roof. The roofers who showed up didn't finish the job, as of yet, ran out of materials ... keep waking up in the morning thinking this will be the day they show up to finish our roof ... Big storm again last night...Even before we replaced our roof, we didn't have leaks like last night ...

          • My mom and have messed-up backs and are having trouble moving. I also had to sacrifice my heart's desire, to ease my family's burdens

            • A guy is popping bubble wrap, the small not so loud kind, while wearing headphones at his desk and driving me mad.

              I want to throw something but as I look around, nothing but sharp objects...

              :brick:

              Hope I don't make the news tonight.

                        • My bedroom isn't a bedroom, it's a train station with a bed in it. People come and go at will. I have no privacy, no knocking. It's just "Come right in, forget all about what I want."

                            You ever think of charging for an entrance ticket? Have a sign outside your door saying "Welcome Aboard - Only $5".....or whatever you feel is a worthy price.

                                One more thing....maybe charge $6 to enter, with a $1 rebate when they exit. Give them an incentive to not stick around! (hmmmm, now I think I understand why I've been getting cash whenever I leave places.)
