Does anyone know a good mechanic who does jobs on the side at home perhaps? I need some work done (front brakes, tune up, O2 sensor, and upper right ball joint on a 99 Tahoe) and the quotes I'm getting from garages are outrageous. The labor rates are astronomical! The parts are inexpensive at Autozone. I don't expect anyone to work for free but I'm not down with highway robbery either...

I have a friend who is wonderful mechanic. He works at home on the side. His day job is heavy equipment repair. He knows his stuff ( told us we needed a water pump after just hearing a rattle) and has always been fair and honest. PM me if you want the number and I will check with him to make sure it is OK
