I'm in search of a few good local mechanic resources in my area. If anyone has references, please pass along. Thanks.

Could be anything from front-end suspension, steering, brake work to engine rebuild.

front end and suspension stuff, I got to puget sound alignment (Mark and Lonnie). I have them do all my alignment stuff but most everything else, I handle myself.

It'd be nice to find a chill truck tire shop that doesn't charge a $6 "torque fee" per axle to tighten the lugnuts after charging $50 to mount the wheel onto the truck.. This was in Auburn, Washington.

Meanwhile, Model Garage in Fall City, WA works on older stuff I've seen some Bolter era machines in their yard. They're also pretty honest, and fair in their prices.
