Need a good WMass 4x4 shop

Anyone know of any good 4x4 repair shops in WMass/Springfield area? After I had a suspension lift put in out in CA there is a major vibration when accelerating in the rear part of the vehicle.

Thanks

Just watch out for him selling you stuff you don't need and then charging an arm and a leg for what he does do. Did you get a SYE installed along with the lift? I'm local to you if you want to swing by some time and I can take a look at it for you.

Thanks for the response. Not exactly sure what the SYE is so bare with me. They just did a 2" lift suspension with fox shocks and 31x10.5 tires. They put on some new U joints and a steering column. They had some major vibrations after the install and couldnt figure it out for a few days. I think they did something with the differential. Had the jeep dealership check the engine and drive shaft but all were good. Even tried a new drive shaft just to make sure and no improvement so I think its the differential or rear alignment.

I sounds like they didn't put in a SYE (slip yoke eliminator). Some Jeeps even with 2" of lift will get vibrations because of the increase in the angle of the rear driveshaft. There is no adjustment for alignment on a stock TJ, so nothing is out there unless the Jeep was in an accident, or the lift they installed has adjustable control arms.
