Default Opinions on Southern Indiana Honda specialists?

Hey everyone--right off the bat, I'd like to let you know I searched H-T forums before asking about the following topic, so as not to waste anyone's time.

I live near Bloomington Indiana and drive a 2000 EJ6 sedan. I bought some Koni yellows and H&R OE Sports about three years ago, then put myself through nursing school and didn't have the means or time to install them. Now I'd like to get cracking and have them installed. They've been sitting in my parents' attached garage in their original packaging--they should still be good, right? I also have moved from central Ohio to south-central Indiana. Do any of you have a shop you trust to do a good job installing these parts? I'm not opposed to paying a Honda dealer's labor rate if they do a good job, but I don't necessarily know if they have expert knowledge on a car which has been out of production for 15 years (our local dealer is Stephens Honda, FYI).

What I need is a shop which knows these cars really well and which I can trust to put reasonable effort into doing a good job. I'd also like to have my trailing arm bushings replaced. Any suggestions as to who to call?

Thanks for your time.

Suspension is...so very, painfully simple. Why don't you do it yourself?

That said, something like this really belongs more in the regional forums than it does here.

If you don't have to tools, it's not painfully simple. It's painful.

A hydraulic press, or a home-made compression device at the minimum, plus a suite of hand tools and wrenches.

You're best bet is to take it to a Honda speciality garage, probably in Chicago-land area. Ill Garage has been good, a few buddies have used them multiple times. Armondo is helpful. Pro Function is another. Mikey is a cool dude.

Although, I'm in Portage IN, and I can do that stuff, just slow sometimes because I run a computer business full time. PM me if you wish. I also have a 2000 EJ8, and I've done everything under the sun to it, besides body work, with my own hands. I know the car like the back of my hand.
