    I never go to Autozone (douchebag extraordinaires in my hometown) except for two brake rotors that are only sold there. I was perusing through the warranty and it said "void if used offroad" or something of that nature.

    So, when did that happen?

    I can't warranty the rotors anyway because they've been modified but I was just wondering when they added that to their warranty.

    I find it amusing. Is someone going to say... "Yeah man, I was bouncing off rocks like a pinball while navigating the Rubicon like a 5 year old in a shifter cart when all of a suddent my tie rod end sh¡t out on me." "SO here I am for the WARRANTY". No, they're going to say, "this part failed on me, here is my receipt". I'm not going to volunteer that I was abusing the product that they charge me $33 for that doesn't even come with assembly grease in it.

    The corporate lawyers and beancounters force that kind of crap on companies these days, to save $$$. Problem is that these idiots are too far removed from reality to realize that if you piss off enough customers, there won't be any money in the corporation to save.

    But on the other hand, most of the Autozone parts counter types I've run across wouldn't recognize a part that was used offroad, unless of course it was still dripping mud or had obvious rockrash on it...

    I returned calipers from a Nissan to AutoZone to get my core charge back when I did my rear disk swap. :grin:

    Yeah... when turning a core in make sure you do it at a time when you're not buying the part. Because most parts counter guys seem to want to help you out and make sure that the one you're buying is the same as the one you're returning. I've made that mistake before. It's hard to dig yourself out of that hole.

    Cores are a racket anyway. Let's tax you on a tax on something you've already bought once.
