Seals are at the end of the drive shafts, front and rear.
Google them and look up pics. Not hard to see.

so it's a 4x4. if it is the front wheel bearing assembly is 201 bucks for an AC-Delco OEM replacement from Rock Auto. for all of you that thinks wheel bearings are cheap most new vehicles have non-serviceable wheel bearings you must but the whole wheel bearing and hub assembly. however I believe that price they quoted you is way high. the hood release cable is 61 bucks for a GM or 24 bucks for a Dorman. seals should be under 10 bucks. highdesertranger

So I decided to consult my old mechanic who I loved but stopped going to when I switched jobs. He's a little out of the way for me but he's quick and fair and highly regarded. Over the phone he quoted me $350 for the front wheel bearing whereas the other mechanic quoted $600. I didn't say anything to him about the other issues. I'll ask him to give it a once over and we will see if he notices anything with the seals. It means another 15 miles of travel through rush hour to get there but I feel more comfortable knowing George is back on the job.

I want to thank everyone who encouraged me to get a second opinion. I just got a call from my old mechanic. All I told them when I dropped it off was that it needed the wheel bearing and the left directional was blinking fast and that I had the bulb replaced twice but it still kept doing it. And I told them to check it over for anything else.

They said it needed both a new turn signal socket and a daytime socket. I thought the left daytime lamp was out but I wasn't sure. The other mechanic never even noticed it. That'll be $160 and I'll get that done later this month.

And they said besides that it needs nothing. No leaks, everything looks good. I think I still would be wise to get the hood latch fixed but that can also wait.

So a total of about $500 instead of $1700. I'll be taking it back to them not only for the sockets but also for a complete once-over before I hit the road.

I am much relieved. Thanks again!
