SoCal shop recommendations??

Hi! New to the forums, and curious if anybody has a shop recommendation for the SoCal (L.A.) area. I'm in the San Fernando Valley.

I didn't see a sticky, so thought I'd ask.

Specifically, I'd like a shop for suspension/chassis work. General maintenance from a Subaru-competent shop would be nice, too.


Thanks!

thanks. The shop is about a 3 hour drive for me. Hoping to find something closer to L.A./SFV. Infamous seems well-reviewed-- good to know they're there.

I'll ask my good buddy Ferretboy if Steve is still there.

If he is, one of only two shops in North America I'd completely trust with Slynki.

Renner in Inglewood has a good rep.
