    Anyone recommend a shop to do suspension work in or around the upstate?

    had East Coast differentials and 4x4 do some work on my heep but he seemed to only like jeeps.

    thanks

    Magnaflow, Fox RR/ Camburg UCA up front, Bilsten 5100 and some kind of AAL/ leaf pack in the back?, Light bar w/ Hella, and an air freshener
    There's a place off North Tryon in Charlotte called Tarheel 4WD, I only had them change out the Uni-balls in my Camburg UCAs but they seemed competent. Not in SC but thought I'd throw it out there

    Never dealt with them either, but I've always heard really good things about them.

    these guys are Heep fanboys.. I got the vibe that if you have anything other than a Heep then you're inferior. Just my $0.02

    I tried wheeling with my liberty on coil spaces and km1s. It was terrible. I know it's ifs but my prerunner put it to shame. My 4x4 now can go places I wouldn't imagine going with it

    I played tennis with a wall once. It hit the ball back every single time. I want to be as good at tennis as that wall was.

    The stock 2.5 was weak as hell, but reliable. The 5.7 is pretty stout, no problems from it.

    I went through 2 engines I mean. It broke down a lot. It had bad oil retention problems. It drained all of its oil through the cylinders that all 6 had holes punched through and totally failed a compression test with zero compression
