Best diesel shops in st louis Missouri

Looking for reliable diesel shop in around st louis Missouri area. I have a 05 f250 6.0 that has coolant in oil. Assuming bad head gaskets. But what stumpes me is theyve been done before and already have studs. Egr is deleted. Bought truck in June of this year. Guy put new radiator and water pump in it and supposedly a new oil cooler. I've put 15k miles on it since june and truck runs great. Makes.me think maybe he messed something up on the cooler or something. But you'd figure I'd have symptoms way sooner then 15k miles. Another thing is 2 weeks ago I noticed a small coolant leak right under the power steering pump,front cover
So also makes me wonder if there something up with the water pump or front cover to cause coolant to mix in the oil. Truck fires up and runs now no knocking or anything. Right after I noticed the coolant leak checked everything added some coolant amd drove it another 2 weeks until a few days ago it started to get hot then fan kicked on and cooled right back down. Took home and checked everything. Coolnt was good. Oil dipstick looked good clean oil. So I drained a little oil out of the pan just for giggles and what d you no about a 8oz cup worth of antifreeze czne out first, then fresh oil after that. Check dipstick after that slightly milky.now. any output be great. Either way its getting diagnose tomorrow. I've used stl diesel before on my last 6.0 and they were pretty good. Any other places name them! Thanks!
