Found a good shop in Provo

So it took me 3 times but I was finally able to find a good shop to work on my FJ. The first two (Ultimate 4x4 in Orem, Fat Bob's Garage in Ogden) didn't catch the torque steer that my rig was exhibiting and just aligned it without taking into account the moving alignment. This one, was able to diagnose the problems that I knew were there (torque steer from loose lower link mounts) and were able to properly tighten, clean up welds that resulted in loose mounts and subsequent torque steer, and align it back to its original condition. They also caught wear on the steering suspension that the other shops didn't catch either.

Good to know! I think I might have seen you heading North on I15 this weekend. You have blue rock rings on your rig, right? It also looked too mean to be an FJ without Longtravel!

I was riding my bike with my dog on the bike path just East of the freeway if you saw me and the crazy mutt!

My voodoo was parked about a mile behind me on the side of the bike path if you noticed her from the freeway

I'm the service writer/manager at McFarland Automotive up the street from DJ and can vouch for their work from their side of the counter. They have a spectacular reputation and have my respect 100%
