I've done 2 wheel bearings in the past year, and I don't have a modded suspension.

Why do you want to replace your catback? its stainless steel isn't it? I love your exhaust...thats what I was thinking of getting.

Well I read up on the triflo before I bought it and every where I looked said that they rust at the welds within 2 years..... I have had mine for 5 or 6 years now and that was with 3 or 4 winters on it and the weld is starting to split... but it should last a while longer

You should buy one HOW Much were the wheel bearings per side???

I think I paid about 220 for the front including labour, and the back one was a bit cheaper for some reason, I think it was about $175 including labour....not sure exactly, but I'm pretty sure it was around that. I would have to check my records.
