College Station/Bryan area diesel tech

Does anyone know of a good local diesel shop around College Station/Bryan/Navasota? I could go to Houston but it'd be more convenient and cheaper on fuel to stay local. I'm possibly looking at getting my front end done (ball joints, bearings, alignment). I could probably do it in a weekend but I'm working out of an apartment parking lot and have limited power tools and air tools. Thanks!

Thanks for the quick info guys. I called Matt today and he apparently only does performance stuff, not general repairs (front end stuff). He suggested either B&B Automotive or something like Trucks Plus. I'll get in touch with them on Monday. Thanks again guys.

Anyone else have a good, reputable diesel tech up in this area? I'm just not sure how I feel about such a "general" place like Pickups Plus. They did my bearings and stuff and as far as I know it was good work but I'm less than satisfied with their help with my front end grinding noise issue. Thanks!

I know someone in Houston too I just don't want to drive 90 miles with this grinding that's goin on. If it's something more serious than exhaust rubbing I don't want something to break during the drive ya know?

I sent you a PM. Ball-joints/bearings are no problem. You will have to go somewhere for an alignment though. I recommend the life time alignment at Firestone.
