    Slightly crooked steering wheel after tire rotation + lower ball joints

    If reading correctly, the alignment was done almost two years ago in July of 2019. Not sure they would redo it for free after that amount of time if that is what you are suggesting.

    Changed Oil on the 05 Suburban yesterday

    I wish redhat the best of luck with his truck. His care and attention to oil changes should keep the motor alive at least another 100K. But there are a ton of other systems (steering, brake lines, suspension, starters, alternators, water pumps, etc.) that are subject to failure from age, miles...

    This is one reason why Amazon is winning

    You could write a very long history book on the numbers of retail and wholesale operations that were absolute tops in their fields that have gone long downhill.

    Peace of mind from driving a beater?

    I don't go out of my way to treat her poorly, but my 8 year old car with 90K miles has some dings and scratches that I have no intention of doing anything about. OCD not allowed in my household - Does this mean that I will no longer be allowed to post or even read posts on BITOG?

    Worse repair ever?

    There is a reason the vast majority of owners get rid of cars well before they hit the 20 year old mark when all of these PITA repairs are needed. Even those owners that have the skills to do these jobs just don't want to do it. Nor do they want to pay a shop to do it as the labor costs add up...
