Is there a "Car Car Nut" repair shop in the Raleigh, NC area

I am the original owner of a pristine 1998 4runner Limited that needs a recommendation for a top notch 4runner mechanic in the Raleigh, NC area. I do all of my own scheduled maintenance and some intermediate mechanical repairs (brakes, ball joints, radiator, transmission oil cooler and such) but need someone for the more difficult repairs (suspension, AC, etc) when they inevitably fail. Does anyone know of a "Car Care Nut" (the youtube channel) that resides in Raleigh? Too bad the guy is in Chicago. He's had a few videos with our 3rd gens and loves them.

Thanks

I met the guys who own this shop on a trip I did to Louisburg, NC to film some videos with East Coast Gear Supply. They are good guys. They can definitely help you out with the suspension work. I don't know the full gamut of what they are capable of doing though. There not a full service shop but I bet they'd have a recommendation for you for any work they can't handle.

TEQ Customs LLC


If you need any differential work, definitely visit ECGS in Louisburg. Tell them Timmy the Toolman referred you.

If you don't know where to go in a new place, you could start by locating an ASE certified mechanic (ASE.com). They get certified for specific knowledge such as transmissions, electrical etc. The master certification is the whole car. They wear patches showing their certifications. If the do a bad job you can report them.
