No, its not a given. An experienced Tech WILL replace the VS as he's aware of the importance. What did your receipt indicate?
Just curious, what did they charge to do the mount?
Local dealer was charging 1/2 Labor ($50 + Tax). But now will NOT put other than their tire on. The Indy I use charges $25 + Tax. Lately, I've been using Spoons and Dyna Beads.
I was ordering on-line at several places (warehouses), a lot of the OEM parts say "unavailable". Can't believe they don't have Spark Plugs
. Guess there Dealer Policy is now spilling over to suppliers of their OEM parts.
