So, I take the car to the shop to have the springs swapped and snows put on... should be about $400 maybe $500 with a couple extra fixes tossed in.

um, wow.

1) Bent strut
2) destroyed backing plates on rear brakes, which means
3) needs new wheel bearings at the rear
4) front brakes on UPSIDE DOWN, therefore
5) destoying flex lines
6) wrong fuel filter having the effect of
7) badly kinking the fuel feed lines and
8) front LCAs are wasted.

oh joy.
