Houston Area. Be cautious of work done at Street Dreams Unlimited

I'm opening this thread on behalf of another member.


Quote:
"I asked for this thread to be created not to bash any person in any way shape or form. I don't dislike anyone at this shop or have a grudge towards anyone at Street Dreams Unlimited. The work I had done at Street Dreams Unlimited almost took my life and most likely would have taken my friend if he was still in the vehicle. Please be cautious of any shop doing any type of suspension work to your car. Your life may depend on it.

Wreck pics below and work done by the shop. View the photos and take your own opinion. What I have asked to be posted is my opinion and my opinion alone. Others may agree or disagree but that is their choice to decide and make public or not.

The body work and paint work I had done there by Manny was fine. Other than a small section not being buffed enough, I was happy with it overall.

The mechanical work done to my car imo was seriously negligent to say the least. It's imperative that all suspension type work be torqued to spec and double checked. This was not the case of the work I had done there. The photos of the camber arm show NO mechanical failure, only the lack of tightening parts to spec.

Please choose any shops carefully to do any suspension work, and honestly I would take it to another shop afterwards to have it checked again.

Call me paranoid but I won't make the same mistake twice.

Be safe and happy motoring to you all.

Mike"

Just to clarify I was the one that asked for this to be posted. In a way I feel bad about having it posted. Yet at the same time I know I am doing the right thing.

Be safe,

Mike.

So what's going to happen with them now? Are you going to sue them?
