Good jeep mechanic in bellevue-redmond-kirkland areas

Any recommendation to a good shop where i can take the car for a simple work? Need to add high quality spacers to my wife's 2013 wrangler or somehow limit the direction as we have a tiny bit of rubbing when at full lock towards the tight due yo 285/70/17 tires on stock wheel.

What do you mean by spacers, are you needing lift spacers or are you wanting wheel spacers?

Is it rubbing on the inner fender well or is it rubbing on the outer fender?

It is rubbing against the direction bar only when close to full lock to the right. So i am evaluating if something can be done to the direction (the problem is less than 1/8 of an inch) or maybe switching to non stock wheels that can clear up the minimal clearance problem.

I have no issues wrt height, fenders, etc.

I discarded the wheel spacers as an option...

Wheel Spacers will be the simplest and cheapest option, wheels with less backspacing will be your other option. Either way any tire store will be as capable as anyone else with solving your problem.

You can adjust the steering stops out a bit. Or get some coil spacers to install. The issue is installing them. You have to get the rig pretty high to drop the coils. I use a cherry picker.

thanks. That is what i was thinking of after reading useful tips in this forum. To my surprise, two local jeep dealers and one DT shop did not think of that simple solution and all told me it was not possible to address.

As you well said "a capable" shop is the trick
