Well half of it you could do yourself with hand tools and a Saturday, brace, brakes, tb, TA, alt. The other half any rear end shop can install and the subs can be welded at any muffler shop. Ball joints and bumpsteer can be done by any alignment shop.

PEP BOYS could do most all of it if you didn't want to touch it.

I take my Mustang to Marrysville Speed and Custom. I have been happy with their work, and would recomend them. I had them install a Procharger, shocks, struts, springs, and a rearend on my car, and have had no problems.

anybody heard of Honest Performance in Federal Way? I had them hone out a harmonic balancer once and they seemed like a good crew.

I've been looking for someone to trust with subframe connectors as well.

I feel sorry for you. You are gonna get raped in labor to install all that stuff.

Good luck on your quest.

I have never had a problem with talking to anybody at Brads. The guys are always very nice to me even though they don't work on my car at all. To me that alone speaks volumes as most shops will boot you out the door unless there is cash flow.

You could give "Maximum Performance" in Puyallup a call. They are located near the airport on South hill.

Glen Smith used to work for Art Morrison back when the built race cars. When it comes to suspension and fabrication he is an artist and Byron could do the rest.

If you need another reference, you could call Art Morrison in Fife. When ever I have talked to them about Glen, they never had anything but good to say about him. He has built everything from Bracket to Top Fuel cars.

I always wondered where that guy from Maximum performance came from. I use him for exhaust gas anylizing sometimes. Great folks there.

I just had Brad's do some subs for me and have no complaints. The welds look great.

Call Amber at Fast Specialties in Vancouver, WA..360-213-2781. They do a lot of that work. Lowering kits, gear changes and they have an in house Dyno, plus are SCT Certified for tuning. I would think a one day job.

You could try Blue Oval Performance in Vancouver. Ask for Chung or John. They are good guys and they know their stuff. I'm sorry, you will have to call information to get the number.
