performance shops?

i just finally got my truck started on getting a new tranny put in it, and i want to do a few mods to the engine, where are good shops where they actually know what they are doing in texas? i would also like to talk to someone who really knows their suspension as well. i know maximum altitude does big trucks, but ive seen their work and not very impressed.

i got a 12" rize, and i wanted to convert it to a 14". i talked to a guy who works for rize, one of the techs. and he said he had the 4 door long bed harley davidson edition that had the black rockstars, and that his was 14". He said i could convert the front to coil over, and then just add bigger blocks in the back and new shocks. Only thing im curious about is the radius arms on the front, and then the driveshafts. Am i going to have to lengthen my driveshafts, and then with the radius arms are they going to be long enough? he said the kit was designed to fit up to 14", but they just say 12" incase someone ever wants to go a little taller.

Your front driveshaft will need to be modified with high angle CV's or a transfer case clocking ring will need to be installed. A clocking ring gets expensive since you also need a new trans crossmember. Moving up to 14" will also mean that it may put your alignment out of adjustability. DC or Marty are the guys to talk to about modifying a RIZE kit. They work with RIZE and OUO day in and day out.

Not gonna talk any crap about anybodies products but there are many things that can be improved upon there. But that goes with pretty much anything!! Except maybe Wheat Thins, these things are damn tasty!! (Im eating some right now, lol)
