I am located in San Diego (central San Diego). Anyone have suggestions on a shop to repair/replace the transfer actuator at a reasonable cost?

Tire rotation and manual alignment at Pro Alignment in Riverside.
Due to my tires being too thick. You couldnt get a digital alignment tool to attach to the wheel. So found this shop that does it the old school way by gauge and ruler... awesome !!! These kinds of shops are harder and harder to find.

^ rad. love old school shops like that. scrappy's in fallbrook is the same way. the original owner opened it in the 70s (i think, maybe earlier) and his son runs it now. they have all the newfangled gear but can still get it done the old school way.

Had my suspension, sliders, and skids installed by RPM Garage located at

1136 S Myrtle Ave, Monrovia, CA 91016

They did a great job for a great price! I must say though I did run into one minor issue with the install but Steve (owner) took care of it and got it fixed in no time.

Will definitely be coming back when I get my UCAs and Prinsu rack in.

This thread is amazing! Have gone through all 24 pages looking for a reliable general mechanic for a 3rd Gen in the SFV area. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Used the search thread option for reliable shops in or near Santa Clarita and but it seems like the closest one that's well recommended is in Ventura. That's a bit far for me to drive. Looking more locally or Sylmar/Northridge/Granada Hills area. Thanks.

I suggest you just use Yelp to find a good shop near you.

@jasxn I've used 3C Performance Exhaust in Culver City a few times and had good luck. Sometime it can be a bit of a wait but they do good work.

Look for Ryan or Jay, had my lift kit installed there. I highly recommend them.
So this place is good for lift kits only? Can you clarify?

Windshield replacement

Has anyone had a windshield replaced recently? Got a big a$$ crack in the front glass over the weekend. Thought I'd ask the T4R brethren first, before Yelping. I'm gonna check with my insurance also but highly doubt it's covered.
