i have a 2002 ford E350 van... a very common vehicle.
i brought them my van and asked them to install new brake calipers, rotors, and pads on the front end. they had all new components in their hands. when i got it back, it was making a noise... i figured maybe it needed a day or 2 to ""set in""... it just got worse. i brought it back the next week and told them it was making noise. they looked at it and ""fixed"" it. then it started making noise again (very next day)... i let a week go by. i think to myself ""maybe its not them... maybe its the next component up the line that is doing/causing this."" so i go get new bearings to install. when i took off the wheel, i found out how they ""fixed"" the problem... and why there was a problem in the first place. they had put in the clips backwards and the anti-rattling clip was scraping the inside of the rim... and they ""fixed"" it by cutting the clip off... butchered might be a better word. but since the clips were backwards, the problem was still there. when i did the other side, i found the same scenario with the addition of a completely torn dust boot. they just shoved the rail/rod/whatever-you-call-it thru so it ripped thru the side of the boot instead of the hole it was designed to go thru.
whats that; you dont believe me.... heres some pics of their handy work:
