Performance Shop in Houston?

Hey all,

I am looking for some feedback and recommendations for a good shop here in town. I need some mods done and some suspension maintenance done as well. I need a shop who has a track record and experience with Nissan and aftermarket parts and modifications. Not worried about how much $, just need a good rec. Have you heard anything about these guys?

JTran Studios on Vet Mem
DV8 on Clarewood
Mayco on Bellaire
AwesomeZ on Trenton
Powerfab

Jon, I have no valuable input as to what shops are reputable.

I just think you're car looks like pure awesomenessosity.

Woodlands Performance & Suspension is known for quality work. They're pricey but worth it.

I went to Powerfab on 1960. They installed my front and rear endlinks and RSB. I also had them adjust my coilovers, and they found I needed 2 motor ounts replaced. $1300 for the work. Now my car is riding the WORST EVER. Squeaks, clinks, pops, and massive vibration on the pass side all of the time... I am just fed up at this point. Does this shop in TW know whats up? I really need a shop that can dig in and get this s**t fixed. I feel like I am riding is a stock 89 bronco with 300k miles.

From what I've heard WPS is legit and I know from the cars they work on it seems like they've done a little bit of everything from exotics to trucks. I can't put my stamp of approval on them from experience, but they come highly recommended from all of the custom body shops out here.

I have not been anywhere since PowerFab. My car is worse than ever and I am frustrated. I get noises from every joint in the suspension and a sick vibration as well.

I feel like giving up on this car.

don't give up on it, bro. It'll all be worth it in the end. Check out J-Tran studios. A friend of mine goes there for certain things, and he swears by them.
