mechanic around cbd?

Post by SecaBoy » Mon 07 Mar, 2011 7:44 am

hey

can someone recommend a good mechanic around the CBD area?

i bottomed out at roughly 110km/h (:P) and now the suspension is making funny noises and i scrape on absolutely anything at the front...
and i swear its riding a bit lower at the front as well..

anyway, just need a suggestion of who to see to get this checked out...

Thanks
Ash.

have you modified the suspension?

I've seen what they do to test those cars.. that shouldn't happen to a stock car..

He works on all types. Anything from a shitbox 79 Volvo through to a new Range Rover.

And yeah you're probably right, he does have the shitbox mentality. But the times I've used him he's been good and honest.
