The Suspension Source

Got word of this after seeing your booth at the show. And I feel I should give a heads up about the type of things you do, which is lie to make sales.

That is false. You used to be employeed at AVS which sold parts for lowered trucks, while there you did indeed get caught scamming costumers. I am unable to retrieve the threads at this moment, but can once back on my laptop. And I have heard some pretty bad things about The Suspension Source, but I sent some messages to others who will know more about it. I only recall you getting busted while working at AVS.

So just a heads up, this person will say whatever needs to be said in order to make sales. This post will either get me banned (which I don't sweat over being this is a new forum to me) or it will be deleted by Kris.


EDIT:

And now you are buying reviews. To me, that is a sign of a poor product and a untrustworthy vendor.

Johnny, proof really should accompany accusations of this magnitude. Though FWIW, the only ones who can delete posts at all here are mods.

96Blazer from S10forum? Sounds like it the way he forum stalks. I haven't worked for AVS since 2008 when we parted ways over personal matters. I am the General Manager at The Suspension Source NOT an employee who does as told. Please only make accusations if you are AN ACTUAL customer of The Suspension Source who feels this way. Thank you.

No. But thank you for helping me recall which forum it was. Regardless of why you left AVS, you were caught lying about the products you were selling. And I don't know what sort of logic you are using in saying only your actual customers can make accusations. I recall reading the thread were you caught and called out by members of that forum. I need not have to be a customer of yours to let let others know about it. I know it happened twice.


EDIT:

I just noticed your shifty used-car dealer wording. You say you are now the manager and not an employee who does as told. It is as if you are trying to weasel out of blame by saying you were told to cheat customers.

Now that I have the forum that it happened on I could. I started searching for the threads, but they must have been hidden or moved to a members only section. It was a thread started by a member named 98ssonnos. I will keep searching for the thread though. But I using boardreader, it shows there was once a thread accusing The Suspense Source of false advertisement http://boardreader.com/thread/False_...z6lqXagoy.html It was deleted on the forum but still shows up on there.

Sounds like a troll. I am not backing the company in this thread in any way, as the setup they have is too generic for what I need.

Unless this happened to you, go troll s10 forums.

Post #10 is where it starts. They had their site up their website to make customers believe that they were purchasing a name brand part, but then sending out their knock-off branded part. This was when Kris was working at AVS. It is obvious she is lying in that thread, which is why her comment here saying she never sacrifice her personal reputation to make a few bucks is not true.


http://www.s10forum.com/forum/f12/qu...0/#post7752574
That thread is only a few months old, in it Kris is telling people that her knock-off "budget" part is the same quality all the other brands. Post #21, she is saying that lowering blocks are all the same, and then a few members post showing her that is not true. For being in the suspension industry as long as she claims she has, it would be well known that there are different quality level lowering blocks, saying they are all the same would just be lying to make a sale. Again, which is why her comment here saying she never sacrifice her personal reputation to make a few bucks is not true.

I am looking for the other thread still. It may have been deleted by her though.

The customer ED with the shocks asked for that thread to be removed since he MISUNDERSTOOD. Anyone who ordered the Nitro Drop shocks was upgraded to Nitro Drop 2s which is a CURRENT shock and priced MUCH higher. Not a bait n switch. That was simply an upgrade due to our inventory being out of stock.

Please post something current or please leave it alone.

Your word on what happened with ED does not hold any value. With your history of lying, your word is not to be trusted. If you were not in the wrong with ED, then you would not have hidden that thread.

I did post something current, one of those threads I posted is only a few months old. But I do not understand what type of thinking you have in saying I am not allowed to bring up the times you got caught lying and caught pulling such moves as bait n switch scams in the past. The past is what shows us the type of person you are.

That thread, which is only a few months old, were you say that all blocks are the same, why would you tell people that when it is not true. There is only two explanations for you saying that: one is that you are lying to sale your cheaper quality blocks. or that you have such little knowledge about suspension components you didn't know. But for someone who has been selling these parts for so long is can't be the second one.

When you are asked about your on-hands experiences with vehicles, you word a clever statement to make it sound as if have been building custom trucks yourself. Norcal SS ask to ask you two more times to show proof of your vehicle that you built, before you admit that you haven't built any.


From this from this forum, yet yesterday:
http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...7&postcount=59

You state you are asking that question for future development purposes. That is another of your shyster answers. Does The Suspension Source actually do any development of products? And be honest with your answer. Does the Suspension Source design, manufacture, test, etc.. their own products as you stated in that reply?

Yes I have built some of my previous rides. I never stated I built from ground up. You seen my car at Bimmerfest I installed my own coilovers with the help of my CSR John. Yes we develop our products. We have the coilover components manufacturered from a handful of companies. By doing this we were able to offer a low cost coilover. We assembly these here in Fresno. Yes we design, we outsource the manufacturing process, yes we test the products and yes we give products to testers.

How about photos of the rides you built? And what exact you did on these rides personally.

Tell me the process of how The Suspension Source develops a product. Show me some photos of the process. Or video of the testing. Who is the person doing the designing, and on which products.

On your site, you take name brand items, and photoshop them remove some marking
and claim them as your The Suspension Source items.

Here is one of many examples:
http://thesuspensionsource.mybigcomm...DROP-SPIN.html



That is a Bell Tech spindel. See the logo stamped on them.

Here a The Suspension Source one:
http://thesuspensionsource.mybigcomm...-SPINDLES.html


You used the same exact photo of the Bell Tech spindles,
but you photoshopped out there stamped logo and darked the background of the pic.


I would think a shop that designs, manufactures, and tests their products would have actual photos of the products, and not need to photochop another companies item to claim as theirs.
