Question Any Recommendations for Freightliner Chassis Shop in Florida

Does anyone have a recommended chassis shop near Port Richey, FL (40 miles north of Tampa). Specifically, I need the driveline (U-Joints) checked and lubed and the ride height checked. Starting to get some shudder at low speeds and what appears to be excessive road like noise in the 40 - 50 mph range under load. Also, I am not sure the ride height is correct since having new shocks, tie rod ends, and a rear adjustable torsion bar installed in Indiana earlier this year. Also, had the steering upgrade kit installed. Sure improved (firmed up) the steering but want to get all checked to make sure everything is OK. Thanks.

Lazydays is a certified FL chassis shop. They will be busy but do good work.

Check your U-Joints are lubed. Many of us have found the U-Joints needing lubed that have caused a vibration at low speeds. Dave Fernandez recomends lubing U-Joints every 3000 miles.
