Western Carolina shops

Hello folks! I'm new to Jeeps and the forum as well and I am curious if anyone knows of any good shops to take a Jeep for getting work done? I'm in Wilkes and I don't mind a drive to get someone fairly competent. I'm mainly looking for suspension work. I have a 94 JY that came with a 2.5" lift and I get some pretty harsh driveline vibes at around 63mph and up. I'm looking to go bigger on my lift and a SYE. I would do the work myself but when I'm home (I contract in Afghanistan) I really don't feel like wrenching and being its also my DD, I can't afford a lot of downtime. I browsed through the forum and didn't really find anything so I thought I would ask. Thanks in advance.

Rubitrux is in Boone. They just deal with Jeeps. They just installed my lift. I *think* their rate is $65/hr. I'm happy with them.

Oh, he also offered to let me take one of the Jeeps from his lot to go out into town while they worked.

they (Rubitrux) have a good reputation in the triangle as well. I looked over a Rubitrux conversion 2 years ago in Durham and it was stellar.

I can't speak on the 4wheelparts in Charlotte, but the one in Raleigh is good to go!
