Default Engine rebuild/reman in Grand Rapids Area

I have a 1999 Suburban with the vortec 350.

It's making a bad knock/tick that I think may be a seized bearing. I'm going to dig into it this weekend.

If it ends up being somthing major, I'd like to start looking into engine rebuild or remanufacture options.

Who should I be looking at in the GR area?

Steve

Stay away from LANNY at Accurate engines.

My only experience is with modified motors so these shops may be a little pricey for just a basic rebuild.
I have used Dick Etch at More power in sparta and Performence engineering with great results. I have also installed many jasper engines with no problems in the past.

Stay away from austin Jordan as well

IMO I would find a lower mileage used motor and put it in. Bigger fan of a factory motor w/50K then a reman motor not done by oe.
