New shocks in Chicago area

Hello Forum, I never post here but i occasionally visit.
I am in need of new front and rear shocks (2011 Limited).

I plan to replace with OEM parts/shocks.

Does anyone know of a repair shop in the Chicagoland area that I can trust to do a good job and at a fair price.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
-john

Read as, "prepare to pepper your anus for oem XREAS replacement cost". It had the same effect.

I agree tho. 5100 will also be all around better then oem.

Another option is the Eibach lift/level kit with shocks and springs or just the shocks. If you search that thread there is one in depth install and review of a limited that ditched the xreas set up and went with this setup.
