i got my new tires installed in june i see something not looking right, 3 out of 4 fork bolts down by the axle walked out, and the fourth was on hand tight. dealer told me this is normal [:M15] so after arguing forever i got 4 new bolts coming woohooo... would my axle have walked out to the side or was i still safe?

Completely normal. All of us loose bolts after tire changes. Did they actually expect you to believe that crap? [:M99] That's an insult to your intelligence.

I don't know if it would have walked, but whatever. That's not right! I'm just glad it didn't turn into something worse.

haha, yeah the manager was nice, but they were trying to play me for a fool. im a serivce writer for toyota, i know the game try to protect the tech, but your right it was insulting,. i guess 500 bucks for a couple tires is not enough $$$ to get everything tourqed to the correct spec.
