Va.Beach area trusted/competent Mechanic?

So, I might have a problem with the front bearing(s). I have a squeak that is continuous but goes away when brakes are applied or the road curves. One mechanic said it was brake pads and he could install quieter pads. (45k miles on current).
That said, I've been hearing bad things about Beach Ford's repair shop. Any suggestions or ideas??
Thanks.

Hey whats up

I would try to take it to an offroad shop. Try Twisted Diesel or ETA, after having the lift and stuff they would probably be a little better with those kinds of issues.

I have been dealing with Ross Anderton at the Shore Drive Shell.
They seem ok so far but you know there hourly rate is high (not as much as beach ford probably, I don't care for them much either)
The shell lets you track your work and maintenance on there web site which is nice.

Cavalier Garage???

Is that the same as cavalier ford or is this a actual garage??? I have had great luck with twisted diesel, actually i might have a oil leak from the little drain hole under the trans area. Anybody have any idea what it might be??
