Rubber Side Down

This is my first post so bear with me please. I bought it 2 months ago and have poured over 4k into new ring and pinion front and rear, new front axles, new bearings, new hubs, 249 T-case rebuilt w/ new VC, 3/4" spacers up front, new wheels and tires. Unfortunately I took it to a local transmission shop that should've told me they weren't familiar with 4X4s because I've been back 3x's and it's still not right. Rear end makes a knocking sound whenever I turn, which wasn't present before I took it in. Front springs squeak when driving. I had to have a different shop do T-case because after I told first shop my VC was out he asked me what a VC was. $ well has just about run dry but I'm determined to have it done by Friday because I'm going to Yosemite (snow), and want to do some mild 4 wheelin' in Fish Camp before heading into the park. I don't want to go back to first shop but the work is warrantied, and I would like to avoid paying someone else to redo the work I just payed to have done. For future reference, does anyone know of an honest, reasonable and competent shop in SoCal?

Thanks to this forum rear end noise fixed with proper oil and friction modifier

With so much misinformation on the net, this forum has been a fantastic site for helping me start loving my ZJ. Thanks to all who post their knowledge for newbies like myself, because without you guys I'd be chasing my problems until the $ was gone completely. VC problem, found answer here. LSD problem, here (friction modifier additive). Now I've just gotta figure out why my dimmer switch doesn't work and my factory stereo cuts in and out. Infos probably here and if so, I'll find it. Thanks again to ALL.
