You'll only get the discount if you mention the website. Otherwise it's the standard price and I almost made that mistake once

I replaced my whole suspension with FRPP (ford racing performance parts) stuff to fix the old work out stuff and lower it as well. Cost less than $300 I almost feel bad for Toyota owners. It's like $1200-$1400 for 4 struts Guess they should stick with domestic cars

That reminds me I need to replace the bushings and strut towers on my Cruiser. But, I don't have the money for it. CMP is going to be tough for me given funds right now.

146K. Timing belt snapped, belt valves. Friend sent the head out to be reconditioned, so it also has new guides and seats.

Overall, the price I paid is well worth it. Especially with it being fully loaded.

It's a box on a Neon's chassis. But, it really is clean for a 2002 MN car. At first I wasn't impressed with them because the design really a novelty. But, in comparison to the FCV, it's a sports car.

Actually, the previous owner dumped a ton of work into it: suspension (minus towers and bushings), brakes, tires, misc repairs. When the belt snapped, he just didn't want to put any more into it.

I don't understand why ccw isn't allowed EVERYWHERE. I understand check your gun at the courthouse maybe...but other than that..I see no reason a person shouldn't be allowed to carry

Because people are stupid and trust the government to protect them. Lemmings, all of them.

I say let them carry. Armed officers in every part of the building and room. They draw, they get shot down. Simple solution.

The supreme court screwed us when they made the "Reasonably safe" judgement to business. Which means they can prohibit you from carrying a weapon on company property, as well as deny a lawsuit if you get hurt because they don't protect you while unarmed. Total BS

What is one of the countries with the lowest crime rate? Sweden, where every man of military age is required to have a gun in the house.

They did a test in the US like that (somewhere in FL iirc) and the crime rate dropped to almost nothing as well

Depends upon the law of the state. Here, if I have my permit to carry, I am legally allowed to exit the vehicle and place it in my trunk while in the parking lot. Schools, churches, gov't property, businesses with strict no carry rules all are the same.

In regards to the lawsuit if you're inured/robbed/etc while on property which doesn't allow you to carry, you can sue the place. You may or may not win. However, I know of two companies whom have been sued, and lost, when it came to failure to protect it's employees. One woman was killed by her ex while in the parking ramp going to her car after work. Company was found negligent to protect her.

Yep. Switzerland, they keep their issued rifles for life.
