Default Looking for a shop in the western Chicago 'burbs

I just ordered a 3" lift kit from Trail Masters for my XJ and plan to install it myself. However, I'd like to bring it to a shop when I'm done for a well needed alignment and to patch a small rust spot on the driver's side floorboard. Can anyone recommend a shop? I've heard of Attitude Performance, but they may be a little overkill / pricey. I'll still check them out, but wanted to see who else was out there. Thanks!

Attitiude in Arlington Heights is really the only reputable offroad shop here. Many places will do the alignment, but I'd call first just in case. I take mine to Tuffy's Auto Service across from my work for alignments, I'm not sure about welding the floors though.

Thanks! Welding the floor isn't the biggest concern as it's a small area, but I figure while it's at a shop, if they can take care of both that's great. I'll give them a call and see what they say. Otherwise I will check out Tuffy's as well.
