    Hello everybody!

    I just moved to LA from Texas, and I need to get some work done on the front end of my LX470. I'm getting lots of popping and snapping from the front end during braking and cornering, so it seems like I'm up for some new control arms up front, or ball joints at least if it makes more sense financially. I would do it myself, but my apartment doesn't have the space to have my vehicle on jacks for that amount of time.

    Does anybody have any shop recommendations in the area that work with cruisers a lot? I'm in West Hollywood, close to Melrose and La Cienega, but I am fine with traveling within 45min - 1 hour for the right shop.

    Thanks in advance!

    That is exactly what I was looking for, Dragos. Thank You! My search didn't yield any results for what ever reason.

    Just stay away from KnH in Canoga Park. What area are you located at in LA?

    Apparently there was a change in ownership.
    Those in the valley know a lot more about that place. I believe Joey, which recommended the place a while back, now says to use caution.

    Just ask around.
