Chicagoland Area Shop For SYE Job

Really don't have the time to do this if i buy an XJ and all the one's i'm looking at are already lifted 3.5" to 4" so a SYE would be helpful. Anyone know of any shops that can perform this on a 96+ XJ w/ either 242 or 231 TC's

It's really easy man, with a little patience you can do it yourself. I just installed mine about a month ago, first time with the SYE and it wasn't that bad.

I take it that your experience with them has been good?

Thanks for the post.
