Hope I didn't make an inappropriate request by asking for a mechanic recommendation.

Sorry if I did.

I don't use mechanics for anything other than transmissions, so I wouldn't know of any good locals, except maybe my muffler guy! I do strongly agree with jr's3800 on saving the money. It'* actually not a difficult job. INVOLVED and time consuming, but even a rookie can do this in 6-8 hours if they tag and mark everything taken off.

Chilton'* #28200 will get you through it for about $15. Should be available locally, and if not, I know GI Joe'* in Albany has it on the shelf most of the time. Failing that, I have one you can borrow if you can get to Corvallis. I'm super busy this weekend, and won't have time to drive out to SH.

It should. That book covers the 92-99 H bodies. LeSabre, Park Ave, 88, Bonneville, etc.
