NJEx is starting off with a positive reputation.
Just got our X back on Friday, but the mechanic called and said the U joints and CV were toast. He said that is the entire problem. He sent it out to be rebuilt and had it back in a day. I asked him for a picture of the meltdown, so I can post here, but my wife picked up the X because I was away and she did not know to ask. I had bought front shocks, but the bolts were frozen so I had him install them as well. I don't think that had anything to do with it, but just turned 100k, so -- its time anyway. Anyway, total bill for the rebuilt drive shaft (U joints and CV), labor including the shocks was $647.00. I haven't been in it yet, but he says it is smoooooth.

Front shocks...upper bushings

How the hell do you get them in?

You compress the shock down and bolt it in on the top. Then, bolt in the bottom.
