Ugh...want this.

I agree I think that's def a little too pricey for an 06 even if it is a 350. Feel like you could get an 09 for that much but haven't checked prices for awhile.

The dealers tend to favor complete replacement over performing a service such as machining the rotor, not really worth it for them.

My first instinct is to ask if it sounded like the timing chain was stretched but not with an engine that has less than 60k. Hope the dealer takes care of you, keep us updated.
