Im getting ready to take the V in for......oil change, Tire rotation/balence and drain & fill the rear end fluid.My q to the forum is,
#1 How much is rear fluid change?
#2 how much is tire rotation and the best rotation style for the V?.
The reason for the Qs is coz i never had to pay for these things being done.Due to dealer fault wich lead to rear replaced (warrenty) and comp of rotation.
So the first time im paying for it, I want to get the most & best for my money.
Any help is appreciated.


EDIT
Wich is the best Balenceing for the V??

Oil change done at home: ~$30
Diff fluid change done at home: ~$50 (right stealthV?)
Tire rotation done at home: ~free (take it to a tire shop for balancing)

Knowing the work was done right, the right fluids were put in, no parts were left off, they didnt joy ride...

PRIECLESS..

There are some things bribes to the service manager MAY buy you at the dealership, for everything else, there is the CadillacFAQ:

You are without conscious and are totally unaware of the rights of lot boys nationwide! :madtalkin

The joy ride is one of the perks of being a lot boy! Having been a lot boy I protest on behalf of all lot boys! I was my right to wash your car and then beat and wind whip the drips out of the cracks, how else could it be returned totally dry (and empty)?
