Reputable shops in Northern Illinois

Hey guys, Looking for a shop around Chicago metro area that is trustworthy. I have a slight oil leak on rear of motor, just a drip here or there. But also want to do full delete. Figure it's better to do all at once rather than yanking cab off a couple times. Any names of trusted shops would be greatly appreciated!!

If you would consider driving a ways south there is a guy that runs a shop out of Penfield Illinois (approx 1.5hr south of I57/I80 intersection). He is the diesel instructor at Parkland community college in Champaign and he turns out a BUNCH of Powerstroke’s. Gordy Hedrick is his name. Hedrick diesel is his shop. Pm me if you would like his number.
