Any good South suburban Chicago Muffler Shops?

Hi All!

I need to have a complete new exhaust system done in my 1966 Ford Falcon Ranchero. Tailpipe, muffle and everything else. I just want the STOCK setup, nice and quiet. I was gonna have a guy in frankfort do it but every time i go there on the day he tells me to i get turned away cause he says hes too backed up. Anyway if someone knows of a reputible shop that can bend me a whole new exhaust in my area (so. suburbs of chicago) that would be great! The tuffy, midas, and other chain shops dont bend the pipe so there out of the picture. Unless someone knows of one that will.

Thanks in advance!!

theres a meineke on eola rd in aurora, near wolfs crossing. they have a bender and do decent work. be prepared to leave it there for that job.

also the merlins in plainfield on 59 near renwick rd, they did mine not sure if they bent or not the job was custom duals on my 2000 f150.

hope this helps

Thanks, but me and a buddy ended up doing it ourselves. Turned out pretty good!
Thanks for your help!
