Hello all! I have a 2001 SLS with 91K that has contracted the dreaded HG pox! I knew I shouldn't have parked next to that 97 STS the other day! I am trying to locate an independent Northstar specialist in the south-central area of Virginia or Triad-Raleigh area of NC, that uses either Norms inserts or NP studs. Any assist would be greatly appreciated! LF
I know that ajxtcman works at Burns Chevrolet/Cadillac in Rock Hill, SC. That's about 30 min. south of Charlotte . I'm sure they can do it right if it's within driving distance, bu I doubt they will be any less expensive than the place in Pilot Mountian.
Thanks Submariner409 and Faded Crest! I did have an extensive email conversation with Chris @ Rippy's and got good info. Was just exploring to see if there might be another option nearer than the 5 hours' drive. I have been to the Lexington guy's website and with the travel expenses added in it gets pricey...plus he does it with the engine in the car. Not particularly wild about that. Midwest will pull it, plus reseal the lower for less, granted I've still got to get it there.
Thanks Again submariner409! Yes Sir! I fully understand and expect someone performing a service to make a profit! As you have noted in some instances there is some fluff and glitter. All I'm looking for is someone that I can trust, that knows what they are doing and has a successful history with Northstars.
