Default Impressed by Clyde's Frame & Wheel in Pontiac

Anybody else been there for lift work? I have a "clunk" that I needed help finding in addition to buying xle joints. They spent like 2 hours on my XJ yesterday, compiling a list of "fine tuning" and improvements that they would like to see done on my lift and all I ended up doing yesterday was yanking the rear sway bar. Besides the fact that they stock Spicer joints, I got the impression that they know what they are doing and they didn't try to screw me on labor.

They then proceeded to show me a Durango that they considered a complete pile of shit/hack job that they have been trying to fix for the guy for a long time.:tonka:


It seems that a few of the Techs there drive modified rigs. There was one with a Super Duty on 38's and I alo saw a WJ with hood scoops. Not a bad sign when the Techs are into the hobby, too.

I was going to use them for a driveshaft but I built my own. I may still get one done by them, though.
