need help in austin

I need to find a good suspension shop or someone who knows a lot about that kinda stuff in the Austin area. My svt is having some serious issues. It's leaning toward the drivers side and the front tire on that side is rubbing on bumps. So if anyone in the area has any suggestion on a good shop that would be greatly appreciated.

sounds like the struts are blown.. not hard to fix.. are they the stock struts and shocks? if so how many miles are on them.. that's probably your problem.

No the struts are not blow all the struts/shocks and springs are brand new. They were replaced to try to fix this problem.

Well i just got a new set of control arm bushings. Hopefully they will help with my sagging problem. Have any of you guys ever tried to replace them?
