This needs to be public. I paid Josh at True Street Tuning $1400 to make a set of 1g tubular subframes in May 2018. He promised a delivery time of one month. I waited paitently and checked in with him over the next 6 months. He had some excuses, like parts were out of stock, etc. In January I started to get mad about the whole deal. We agreed that he would either ship the subframes by a given date (something like Jan.30), or refund my money. Well, it's May 24, 2019 and I still don't have any parts or a cent refunded. He claims to be broke and injured. I even offered to let him pay me back in installments, like $100 month, that of course was turned down.

I have filed a police report and intend to persue the matter criminally and civilly.

Here is his info, please don't hire this guy to make any parts!

I would be happy to share the email exchanges with moderators. I am not bashing anybody, just stating the facts so that others don't get ripped off by this <insert word here.>



 
I got booted from a couple Facebook groups for calling him out on them being a bad design.

One of his nutswingers got all defensive about it. Then sure enough it didn't matter because he ended up being a fraud anyway, and the few that did get made didn't fit.
 
Extremely glad people like this get put on blast. I can't stand shady business men..
And then they start the sob stories which just makes it worse.
I really do hope you get this resolved and then some.
 
Update 8/28/19. I filed a civil suit against Josh that was scheduled for 2pm today in his hometown of Uniontown, PA. I received payment in full this morning via Express Mail, 15 months after I paid him for the parts. In the end I got my money back, but was out $1400 for 15 months plus all the time I spent corresponding with him and researching the PA court system. I left him an honest review here, and I would encourage anyone else that has had dealings with him to do the same (be honest, I'm sure the feedback will speak for itself.)

I paid him for a 1g sub frame with control arms and sway bar mounts. It’s now one year later still no refund and looks like I will have to go the same route.
 
I don't know who this guy is, but he needs to do hard time. Or just a simple @$$ beating. WTF!

Did you pay with a credit card? If so, call the company and see if there's anything they can do.
 
I bought his 2G cross member years ago and it arrived as said, but I believe that's when he was decent and not long after he started going funny on people.

Glad your situation worked out but its not cool when someone does this
 
I have had two other people contact me regarding Josh and being in the same situation that I was in. My advice is to file a small claims case and keep pushing until you get paid back. This is the info for the office you need to contact to file a case against Josh:

The Magisterial District Judge for 14-1-01 is Michael M. Metros. The 14-1-01 Magisterial District courthouse is located at: 88 North Gallatin Avenue, Uniontown, PA 15401. The phone number for 14-1-01 Magisterial District is: 724-439-2954. The fax number for 14-1-01 Magisterial District is: 724-434-2787.

Call the office and they will walk you through the process. My hope is that after several claims get filed against him, and he gets onto the Sheriffs radar, they will eventually seek some criminal action against him.
 
Josh got me for around $2100 ... I guess I'll proceed down this route.
 
This alone would’ve kept me away from sending him my money.

It’s crazy how many shady people there are in the car community.

I found out that Josh owns NDD, and Richard works for Josh! I'm not going to mention who told me this but its from a very trusted person!

Richard seems to know more about it all and has made some adjustments to try to improve it but by then the trust in the front frames have gone! Me and a few others gave advice how to solve it and nothing changed till Richard came along. Garrett has since changed frames and does not worry anymore about being weak.

NDD do seem to have a strong rear frame which is good I see. They got that nicely done. While not height adjustable not all of them are and even the Magnus is not but still sells
 
I'm taking this guy to court as well for a Starion subframe that has been going to ship in two weeks for 8 months

*Edit that's after 6 months of waiting so total is 1yr 2 months

Josh has been ripping people off under various names for probably 15+ years now. If anyone remembers NSN that was also Josh.

He skipped town after ripping people off back then. I guess that's when "True Street" started, or maybe it was a different name, and he ripped people off in Tennessee or something then came back to Uniontown and opened up in the same shop he had run NSN out of.
