Hi Scotty! First, I'd like to say how much I love your informative videos on YouTube! They're the first place I look for information because you know what you're talking about, easy to follow, wicked humor, and you include the real truth about things, as opposed to what I'd hear from most local mechanics.

Now, I have a '94 Honda Del Sol SI, automatic 4cyl. with 204,214 miles on it. The rear wheel bearings are ready to be replaced. Do you have any input as to what I should look for in a mechanic?  For example, things they may say I need done or replaced that probably don't, and is it a good idea to purchase the Honda part myself when I can get it cheaper online? Or will they even install a part that is brought in? Perhaps it'd be best to go to the Honda dealership for the work?

I'm also thinking of having the brakes done, calipers replaced while they're in there because I have a warped rotor and the metal clips on the pads are rubbing and making noise. The pads were replaced by the seller, but they failed to do anything else, like have the rotor machined or replaced. I know it's those clips after watching a video of yours! Thank Gawd too because I've been trying to figure out what was the cause of the racket for months, even the pros had no clue. One guy bent the hell out the dust shield thinking it was the culprit. So, you rock!!!

Thanks!!! Rufnredy
