I am somewhat new to the creative suites and wanted to see if anyone could grace me with their expertise. When scanning an image into Illustrator I find myself having to live trace my scanned in images to be able to manipulate the image in illustrator, but live trace bastardizes my artwork even when I adjust the preferences. Is there another way to manipulate scanned images in illustrator without lowering the quality? Should i bring the image into photoshop then illustrator? If so, how? any help would be appreciated to the max.

I'm not sure why you're manipulating images in Illustrator, or even live tracing them. Are you trying to "vectorize" them?

What kind of artwork is it?
If you want decent artwork you are going to need to learn how to use the pen tool and draw on top of your scanned artwork.
