Repair Facility Needed - North Orange County, CA

Gents...

I bought a 01 F250 last summer... I've put about 25K on it. Currently I've got a wheel bearing going out, something i could easily fix but I figured it's time to find a good shop to work on my truck. The guy that works on my gas vehicles is a nice guy, but I find myself explaining things to him more often than I should so I definitely don't want him anywhere near my truck.

My office is in Buena Park, so anything in Fullerton or North Anaheim would be awesome. I live in Riverside so that would work too, although it would be more convenient to have a shop near the office.

Any suggestions? I've read here that OC Diesel in Mission Viejo is a good shop, but that's a little too far in the wrong direction.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Wheel bearings are really, really easy on these trucks. And they're the same on the diesel as they are on gas trucks. If you would have posted this a few days ago, I could have helped you. I was in Huntington Beach. Just drove to San Fran yesterday.

Yeah, I've done lots of wheel bearings. Changing them out wouldn't be an issue other than finding the time to do it. I really just need somebody reliable, even if I end up doing this job myself. I'd like a shop in my back pocket for when I really need it so when something serious breaks I'm not stuck taking it to some shady place that doesn't know diesels.
