If I could rate 0 stars, trust me, I would. Vern had my vehicle for 3 months off and on and couldn't fix the rear differential whine coming from his newly installed rear differential gear set. This was after a transmission rebuild, which I suspect after hearing the differential whine I probably didnt need, despite Absolute Auto diagnosing the need for one. After multiple tries in which he had every opportunity to fix his poor differential rebuild, we agreed it needed to go to Randys Ring and Pinion (where he bought the parts from) to eliminate Vern' s workmanship from the equation as he claimed his install was perfect and the parts were bad. After Randys pulled it apart they found the pinion was burnt so bad they couldn't verify if it was an install error or bad break in. Keep in mind Vern had the pinion in and out of the truck at least 3 times and never noticed the roasted pinion. Vern then conveniently couldn't remember agreeing on having Randys doing the warranty work (despite the fact Absolute Auto flatbedded the truck to Randys) and claimed Randys was going to warranty the gear set before I stepped in and jumped the gun by allowing Randys to reinstall. News flash, I have a statement from Randys saying they were never going to warranty the gear set. Absolute Auto lied about it and declined to refund my money, about 1300 dollars in whole. Interestingly enough, the pinion set made noise on install, which Absolute never denies, but then wants to say Randys couldn't verify it was an install error and I broke it in improperly... a simple Google search will tell you if a gear set makes noise on install, suspect the install, not to mention it's hard to break something in improperly when you aren't even out of the parking lot. If you're interested in a similar experience, take your shot. If you want a mechanic who is honest, knows what he's doing, and will actually stand by his work when he screws it up, avoid Absolute Auto like the plague. 0 STARS

Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
