I've been following your thread. You seem to have a great attitude despite what appears to me to be death by a thousand papercuts. That comes with the territory, though, doesn't it? You seem to have many mechanics/shop options near you, which is cool too. I don't have many options by me in terms of anyone I trust to work on my LC. I work on my cruiser, even though I am a novice mechanic at best. It's a good idea to tackle the wheel bearings and birfs yourself. Besides the fact that it's a rite of passage, you'll build confidence in your wrenching abilities because these are straightforward machines. Then you can tackle the suspension, which is also really easy, but it takes patience and know-how that this forum delivers in spades. I assume, in your case, time is the common denominator that keeps you from wrenching and learning vs. the desire or logistics to do it.
