Question Quality shop in the Valley?

Just found out I need to replace the ball joints on my new 03 F250. I'm also looking at replacing the front wheel bearings and fixing a leaking axle seal. I'm a DIY kind of guy, so it's a very rare event for me to take my rigs to a shop, ever, for anything. But, due to having discovered this while my work schedule is blowing up, I'm actually considering having someone else do it.

Can anybody give me a recommendation for a reputable shop in the Palmer/Wasilla area? I'm not necessarily looking for a "budget" shop. I'd pay for quality work using quality parts. But if legit quality gets too expensive, I'll probably just bag the idea and squeeze out a chunk of time to do it myself.

So, who do I call?

There's that 4WD shop off the highway by Trunk road. Don't know if they do ball joints but they did a performance exhaust on my '03 and I've been satisfied with them.

Did you say NEW '03?

Quality Shop

I too would like to find a quality, independent mechanic. No one is speaking up which is surprising. What are your experiences in the Palmer-Wasilla area?
