On the new body style equinoxs im fairly certain the front end acts as a shovel and just scoops them in from the air when theyre jumping. Its fucking crazy how open the grille is to outside debris.

One on the bottom we put on 2 days ago, customer took it home and lasted about 15 miles before it made some noise, replaced with the one on top and it lasted a test drive up the street and was completely fucked, had play like it was worn out for a year. Replaced with a cheap private label and it’s been fine all day today

Unlucky for her, we got a phone call from the construction workers of her stuck in the concrete . They searched our name from the temp tags and called us.

She did [flee the scene]... We are gonna throw it on the lift and do what we can about the dried concrete. She will have to pay for whatever damages we cannot simply fix. As far as the city goes ,they said they called it as a hit and run so I’m not too sure what will happen with that yet.
