Well, I learned a WHOLE LOT today!
First, the jerk at Blaines Farm & Fleet that told me I needed TWO front wheel bearings didn't know what he was talking about.
Second, when you're low on power steering fluid, it makes a noise that some people think sounds like a bad wheel bearing!!
So for a couple of bucks, the noise is gone. That's WAY better than the $300+ it would have cost if I'd trusted the mechanic!
Finally, when a business has a sale on tires, but only has one in stock so they "have" to sell you the really, really expensive ones, that's called "bait and switch."
Dang. They got me on the tires, and one of those brand new very expensive tires doesn't hold air, so it means another three hour wait there to have it fixed. >
