hey my alternator is shot, and everybody keeps telling me that I'm going to have a hell of a time switching it myself. NTB wanted to charge me 400.00 to change it... So does anyone have any advice for me, and also I was wonderig if I needed any help if a IL member could help me out, preferrably someone who has done it before.....anyways I live in lemont, near lockport/ downers grove... If anyone wants to volunteer I would appreciate it, if not any advice one the boards would help..

also does anyone have any alternators that they recommend I should get??
