Thats a fair opinion and maybe fake was the wrong choice of words, but its a fail that was marked as a pass. 

The shops that turned you away knew that the vehicle must be within the ride height specifications of the vehicle manufacturer.

    From what it sounds like to me his is legit. The other shops didn't even look at it to see if it was within specs. Whereas the other shop actually looked at it instead of simply turning it away.

    More like lazy shops that don't want to look at things properly that are totally legit. Not the same thing as trying to get something not legit, passed off as legit.

    I could be wrong though on my interpretation of Vince's post, but that's what I got from it.
