    Default Reputable shop near Brantford/Hamilton?

    Looked through the sticky thread about recommended GTA shops to get work done and didn't see anything about a shop close to Brantford or Hamilton that could do a good suspension swap. I would love to go to Jimmy but I don't know if I can justify almost two hours (plus his wait time I've read about) to get to him. I am looking to get struts/springs installed on my Mazda 3 but I might just do it myself... I've done it on my old WRX so I have a bit of experience, but I would love to have someone else do it for the sake of my time and in case a bolt broke and needed a new one or something like that halfway through the install. Any help is much appreciated!

    I just ordered some new strut mounts and bearings and think I will just do it myself. I also ordered one of the stiffer Electric Ford Focus transmission mounts while I was on RockAuto. Hopefully I'll have a much better driving experience at this point after the struts/springs and tranny mount. Bummed that nobody knows of a good Mazda guy/shop this direction.

    I just sold my Audi A3, but when I had it I was willing to pay the money for installs and upgrades at a shop in Kitchener called Foreign Automotive. I love working on my cars when I get the chance, but it was really nice having a capable shop that I trusted to take on almost any project for the Audi if I couldn't. Hopefully someone can chime in here about a shop for the Mazda in the future.

    Quality Auto was my goto but they recently retired

    Achilles Mazda in Milton is now my new default shop. Definitely done right by me.
