Does anyone have a good hookup or a trusted shop that they go to for all their work. I had a new luk clutch kit put in at bob bakers better way in mission valley and I would rather take it to a shop that has some experience with foci and some of you guys

I just put in a LuK clutch kit last month. With the help(big help) of Josh (aka pumpkinSVT) at his pad though . We'll do it for a small fee [:D] a lot less then what you will pay an $80+/hr mechanic [;)]

I actually had this problem a few weeks ago.

1-4 were fixed by reinflating all my tires to the same pressure AND getting an alignment. After that everything was fixed.

I don't know about your brake cables, though.

I have a mechanic that I would trust taking MY car to, and I don't trust anyone but myself to work on it. I had him work on my 1987 pontiac Fiero and he actually got it to work and I haven't had a problem since! His shop is super clean, and you can trust that he will not cut corners, and that he will do the job right the FIRST time. I've had my sisters had her car worked on at other places, and then she would have issues.....She took it to him and he was able to fix it and the car never ran so good!

The downside......A little pricey. If I can't afford the work for him, I don't chance it...I wait and save up the money for him to do it.
