    Les Schwab sucks...

    They claim it as a safety hazzard that if they work on your truck everything has to be redone and stuff. I took my '70 Chevelle in there to have the brakes bled(temporary fix cause I'm gonna convert it to disks)
    They wouldn't bleed them cause they said the pads were to worn and they couldn't just replace the pads, they needed to do a total overhaul. they couldn't even just do the fronts, They wanted $800 so I took there bottle of brake fluid, filled up my master cylind and drove off with my middle finger in the air.
