Thanks and thanks!  I'll check tomorrow and report back IY"H. I last drove on high speeds on Sunday. I did pull out a lot of snow and ice at a rest stop and at the destination, I think I cleared out most or all of it, but it still shook. It's hard to tell, but I think it felt like it came from the steering column, or suspension. It wasn't the type of violent shaking that the whole car was shaking, rather more like something underneath was moving or hitting something it shouldn't.

In other words, I don't really know what I'm talking about. :)
the more I think about it the more I'm convinced it's not the stabilizer link. If the bushings were shot, you'd hear a clinking sound if the bar cracked (highly unlikely) then you'd have a loose suspension/steering but not a lot of shaking. Removing the stabilizer link provides extra give in the suspension. Precision drivers will remove in order to make tighter turns (you also run the risk of a roll over- hence the term stabilizer link)

Thanks. I Called to see if they deliver but no one answered. An individual that sells beef jerky platters that would deliver would work as well.

The places in the malls (I've been around) all want $400.

Might I ask what your "sounds like a lot" is based on? Did you Google the part cost? How much the other equipment costs? How much time it takes? How much skill?

I spent five minutes googling the above and I think $300 is a very good price. You can also price compare at Staples (at least some stores offer screen replacement).

In my business, "it sounds like a lot" is typically "I have no idea about any of the above, I just want it cheaper".

Don't remember exactly, but it was under $100. Non-iphones are a lot more because they usually need heat to get them opened and glue to reseal it, whereas iPhones use screws.

Recommendations for a place to stay for a family of 10 for a night while travelling from PA to CT.  We'd like to spend a night in the Lakewood area.  Are there  rentals that don't break the bank - I'm thinking less than $150 if possible.  The kosher rentals all seem to start at $250 with minimum 2 night stay kind of deal.

Any experiences and reviews on Lakewood Nutritionists?
It isnt for weight loss per se, I need someone to help with Cholesterol and glucose levels, but I dont want anything crazy (like those balls behind the ears with crazy limitations on diet), it needs to be someone who has realistic plans that can be maintained and is easy to work with.

Thanks

1. Some may be covered by your insurance. You may want to start there.
2. You may be better off hiring a personal trainer since proper exercise may do more than diet.

1.With my deductible I don't think it will help too much to have someone on my insurance as i will be paying out of pocket anyways?
2. Unfortunately that is not really an option right now, I will have to figure out how and when I can exercise myself, I leave home early morning and come home late from the city everyday.

Thanks for the response

I tried numerous nutritionists (for weight loss) and would strongly recommend Yossi Muller. I liked him the most because he uses many different diet plans, and allows you to use the one best for you. Other nutritionists generally have one diet mindset and make everyone adhere to it. He's also very smart and helpful.

It's preventative care, so it's fully covered regardless of your deductible.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
