Q: If the shop I took my car to drive it off the lift are they liable for the damage. After I left the alignment place my car started making a weird noise when I turned took it back and it was the ctrl arm on the front pass side also if thy brk prts do Ipay on 1999 Mercury Cougar

They broke my sway bar link and hub when fixing control arms And they charged me for them.The shop said they would do the work free if I bought the parts and then says he did not say that when I went to get my car he tried to grab my keys out of my hand and wasn't gna let me leave he had his worker pull all 4valve stems out of my tires and his friends hanging there were saying rude things.After we finally squared up he dropped the bill 150$.but he did nit have my vin #off my car till afterhe pulled the valve stems he had the wrong year to my car did not have my name on the invoice.He charged me the same price to put the control arms in that I paid for the parts.He is not a certified mechanic should he if been doing this woRk tho my car aNd lastly my car wouldnt start the day after I got it back and it sat for 8 months till I could afford to have it fixed I hust got it back 2weeks ago I started driving it and I was cheating this popping noise and u could feel it on the passenger floor board so I took it to les Schwab and they informed me that the bushings to the sub frame were nit tightened so I come home and looked in my manuel and u have to lower the sub frame when repairing the ctrl arms and bearing and sway bar link so this tells me that they did not tighten my sub frame after they fixed there screw up I put a total of 116 miles on it after the repairs after taken it into a good shop they found the driver side sway bar link was broke so im wondering if they put a broke part on my car what makes me think this is because they broke passenger side sway bar link And they did both control arms.Thank you Kathy
