I recently went to have my tires rotated. They showed me a huge wear problem on the inside of the rear tires. They said that it is the "cam arms" and fittings and that they need to be replaced at a cost of about $1000.
I also recently got new brake pads.
Could there be a problem where they are related?
Is the cam arm being out of alignment a common problem on Hondas?
Should I get a second opinion?

Absolutely a second opinion to make you feel better about the diag.

The bushings can be replaced without the arms for much cheaper.

No relation to the other repair
