Due to a busy work schedule and a limited knowledge about Fieros I would like to find someone who can work on my car. Things I need done include

Swap Front and Rear Bushings to Polyurethane
Instal Rodney Dickman Ball Joints
Instal front Eibach Springs

I'm in Sacramento

If it's any help, I always recommend John at East Sac Auto, right near the corner of H St. and 57th St. I do 99.9% of all my own car work, but he's the guy in town I trust to work on my car. There's another shop in Carmichael-ish a friend of mine recommends (he's also a solid DIYer) - I can dig that info up if it's more convenient for you. I have a feeling that the poly bushing swap is going to be insane labor, the springs and balljoints are trivial. Every thread I've read about them makes the job sound horrible - that's why I stuck with rubber on my rebuild. I rebuilt the whole front end in an afternoon.

Good info thanks guy! Any recommendations on a shop or person who could do a 3.4 Swap for me? All i have is a Crate Motor, the rest would be up to them. Any ballpark price for what it would cost to have someone do it for me?

There aren't many people in this area with any automotive imagination. Most shops want to do book work to avoid liabilities and such, which is understandable in California.

I've worked with a guy named Ryan Terry down off Power Inn. He is a one man shop, the name is Sikk & Twisted. He did some nice work on my '67 Fleetwood, and he was working on putting a Honda b-series motor in an old N600. He's got the skill I'd say, I just don't know about the interest. It's been a year since I've spoken with him so I don't know if he's still around.

Edit: Looks like he is!

And that's my Fleetwood right on the front page. I'm famous!
