    Anyone have a good shop in LA? I'm in Long Beach, so South County and OC works if you have a recommendation.
    Thanks in advance.

    Waz up? What happened to PBs? As I was installing and adjusting my front shocks, I was thinking all the reasons that PBs might say... well, "not on this truck", or "we have to have it back to the original height," yada, yada, yada.

    Did that $139 3 month deal not work out? Do we just need to find a different one? I've got to imagine the LT guys need to optimize their wallet for alignments - have you talked with any of them?

    I know there is a shop in Westminster, on Garden Grove Blvd, just east of Goldenwest on the north side of Garden Grove Blvd - they do nothing but front end work (IIRC). I went there many moons ago when I wanted to get my wheel/tire/brake rotor combo dynamically balanced.

    Got a refund from Pep Boys. They told me that they can't properly align my truck, after the third visit. I paid for a 4 year unlimited alignment, but they never got it right from the start, except the toe and camber. We'll I've had 2 visits for free so I'm not complaining, but I do need a shop to get my camber right. I know Bajamoon's mechanic has a shop that'll do it right it in Downey, but I'm trying to see if there is anyone else.
    Murphy, I'm going to PM you for the paint stuff.
