Mechanic Recommendations

Hey guys,

I"m located in the Greater Phoenix area (east valley).

Been struck with some real problematic lung issues due to C-19. Been on my back for nearly 5 weeks. Blows! I usually do all the work myself, but just feeling constantly tired & winded at the moment and really want to get a few things done on my 3rd Gen 4run while I'm down (funny, usually your vehicle is down).

I'm thinking I'll just use a mechanic. Been here since '93 and have just realized, I don't know a good mechanic! Guess that's the downside to doing your own work.

-Replacing two front CV axles which would include front diff fluid change
-Replace front wheel bearings (i just did the rear wheel bearings myself)
-Replace timing belt (idler roller, tensioner roller/hydraulic tensioner, front crankshaft seal & front camshaft seals) & all drive belts, water pump & thermostat, which would include replacing coolant (full timing belt job)
-Replace the clutch pedal bracket (easy)
-Replace fuel filter (easy)
-Install front shocks (bilsteins)

I have all the parts needed. Just looking for a few recommendations for mechanics/shops to provide the labor.

Much appreciated.

Kurt is a long way from you, but for a lot of work, it may be worth it

He's as honest as the day is long, ASE certified, reasonable rates and an all around good guy.

Good luck,

Eddie

Thanks! That is a bit away, like half way to vegas. Totally kidding. I'll see if anyone else chimes in. if not, I may just give him a call.
