I wanna check the bolt pattern, and see what the shaft looks like.

Thanks ahead of time!

if no, then they are not pros.

FordFociSHO Are they ASE certified mechanics ,If no they are not pros

Well that i just dont buy ,some of the best mechanics i know are not ASE certifies and some of the worst i do know of are ASE certified

Sorry to me ASE is for parts changers in dealerships not mechanics that deal in the real world

Yes i have been to some of the ASE classes, Most of what is there is a total waste of time about stuff that you will never use unless like i said you are a parts changer in a dealership

but i'm sorry if you are not ase certified you are not a mechanic, you are a handyman. if these people are such great mechanics tell them to take an ase test.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Thats like saying if you're not MSCE certified you're not a computer professional.

ASE is just like A+ cert. Just a piece of paper. Doesn't meen you know **** about cars.
