      Avoid Meyle, URO, and most places that offer a lifetime warranty.

      Not certain what you are implying but there is plenty of information out there that the discs in the hands of the wrong person can cause serious damage. I've seen a tech ruin a block and head surface...

      I have seen headgasket blown between cylinders. It's usually caused by a technician cleaning the head surface with the fiber discs on an air die grinder. It's best you leave that tool in the tool box.
