Looking for a Northstar HG repair shop in the Southeastern US - I am in the greater Raleigh area. I hope to find a shop that has done several jobs with the Northstar Performance studs.

Sorry if this has been already been posted recently!

I second that request. I checked with Chris Heath at Rippy (in Wilmington, NC) a while back and he said that their mechanic doesn't use studs.

I can't imagine he would not use the studs if you requested and supplied them.

Cadillac dealer shops sometimes get antsy about using "customer supplied" parts, and I'll bet the only warranty you would get would be the Golden 90 - 90 seconds or 90 feet, whichever occurs first.

I also believe that CF user ryannel2003 works at a Cadillac dealership in Greenville, NC and has had his HG replaced.

I did work at a Cadillac dealership in New Bern, NC for 3 1/2 years. It was Trent Cadillac and they replaced my HG's in June 2008 using the timeserts. This was done before I bought the car so I didn't pay anything, but the car has nearly 60k miles on it since the repair and has been fine. I don't know of any other shops that do specialize in the Northstar though.
