Good/Bad SVT Service Dept around B'ham/Central AL??

I'm getting real close to 36k miles and I was planning on taking it in and wondered which service departments people have had good experience with or which ones I should stay away from. I really would like to have the clutch TSB done, but I don't really have the symptoms. I heard the 'marbles in a can' once, but not in a long time, and even though the clutch isn't what it once was, I doubt they would say there was 'premature wear'. Has anyone else had this done where they did the TSB regardless? I also have the heat shield rattle plus some interior squeeks and creeks that I want them to fix. So if anyone could reccommend an SVT dealer in East central AL or maybe even West GA, please let me know. Right now I would either take it to Adamson or Jim Skinner in Bham, but if anyone has had bad experience with either of those or great experience with another dealer, please tell me!

Cool, thanks for the info Derek...

Unfortunately, I will probably have to get Adamson to fix at least one thing. That is where I bought my car and they had the windows tinted on it not long after they got it on the lot. Problem is, now the front windows are kinda fuzzy. So hopefully they will step up and pay to have them re-tinted, should find out something tomorrow. But based on your recommendation, I will probably take it elsewhere to get the other stuff looked at.
Have you had the clutch TSB done? Where?
When are we having another GTG??
