I've posted before about my wheel bearings needing replacement. I just talked to a different guy and told him the sound my wheels make when I turn the wheel (like a thumping noise) and he said it wasn't my bearings, though the mechanic who looked at it a month ago said I needed new bearings. This guy said bad bearings would make a different noise and that I actually needed new struts. Anyone know WTF this problem could be? I don't know who to believe. Both these guys work at the same shop. Which service would cost more? Changing bearings or struts? Could the first mechanic have been trying to get more money out of me? I know a few people have had this similar problem. Anyone think it could be the struts and not the bearings? Any help is needed! Thanks a lot. I appreciate it. I was hoping to fix this problem this weekend.
They also said I needed a new serpentine belt because mine had a lot of cracks in it. $85 parts and labor!
I know belts can have a lot of small cracks and be fine. I think they may just be trying to screw me out of my $$$
