Where in Bham and what kind of service?

Are you just looking for a general shop or somebody who specifically works on jeeps?

A friend of mine owns Auto Whiz and I've taken my 2005 sport in there for a couple of things. In fact I'm taking it tomorrow morning for something.

What have you had done there? I'm on 280, and this seems convenient.

Just general stuff. When I bought the jeep not long ago I had them check it out. I had one brake rotor replaced and new pads put on. They said I probably didn't need pads by I wanted to replace them anyway.

I also took it in there because I had a squeak. They pinpointed it as the shock on the rear passenger side. They were really busy that day and I wanted to go ahead and pick it up. Took it home and sprayed the bushing down with WD-40 and sure enough the squeak go quite. There was also a metal on metal sound (not bad but bad enough to hear it). They said the bushings were worn out on those shocks and they also said they were not the correct shocks for a 2 inch lift. So I had them replace the rear shocks when I took it back up there.

Aside from that I had them mount a new spare tire to match my others and had them put some spidertrax spacers on there (which I didn't buy from them).

Like I said, they aren't specifically a jeep place. They work on all cars and stay pretty busy and have a good rep.

Thanks mate - I'll check them out!

I too bought a new (for me) Rubi, and need it checked out.
