DeputyDog Just picked up my Jeep from O'brien Service in Ferndale. Very pleased with the work. It drives straight and solid now, no more bump steer, or wandering.

jimhx720 You guys could also try Jeepers Creeperz in Wyandotte. Have lots of stuff in stock can get you pretty much anything you want, plus they do installs.

computeruser AllPro Automotive on Turner St. in Lansing. They are first and foremost an off-road shop, primarily focused on Jeeps and some domestic full-size vehicles.

Gergrilla Computeruser, would you mind throwing the name of that shop out here anyway? I'm in the area and it would be good to have for future reference.

computeruser Back when I lived in Detroit, I had really good luck with the folks at the Plymouth Rd. Belle Tire (Plymouth and Levan area, Livonia) for accurately diagnosing and inspecting driveline stuff.

The lift you are looking at should be fairly straight-forward to do yourself in an afternoon, though you may end up with some rear driveline issues if you go >2" without a proper resolution in the form of a SYE and new rear shaft. I know, I tried the t'case spacer with my YJ and a 3" lift. It was never quite right, and I ate u-joints faster than I'd prefer to have done.

If you were up here in Lansing, I'd point you to a shop that specializes in Jeeps and would do you right - diagnosis, lift install, tweaking/details afterward - but that's probably more of a drive than is worth it for a Dearborn resident.

Looking for a trustworthy mechanic

Alright here's the deal,my wife is fixin to get the remainder of her student loan check and offered to gimme some cash for the jeep,it's a 95 YJ. I've been dying to lift it since I bought it a year ago,Ineed shocks and leafs anyway,but I want a mechanic to drive it and let me know what he thinks.I have some rattles and not 100% sure what they are.I would hate to spend the money for a lift kit , install it, then bam,my ball-joints or tie-rods go out.So if anybody knows a good mechanic please let me know ....I'm in the Detroit area.thx
