Associated Tire Brake
6353 Ventura Blvd.
Ventura,Ca. 93003 (805)656-2049--you have to make an appointment
Tires,brakes,&alignment

I had a tire rotation,balance&alignment done--on a flat road, I can go over 300ft.,no hands.

Williams Automotive
6027 Ventura Blvd.
Ventura,Ca. 93003 (805)656-1026--you have to make an appointment
Tune-up

They service cars from the 1950's that have been restored, too Corvette's&Porsche's. A lot of the work is done outside of the work bays, if so, you can stand ,watch and talk to the mechanic while he does your car.

I fully trust both of these places, and wouldn't recommend them if I didn't. Very honest ,reliable places to get your car worked on.

Also need recommendations on reputable vendors/installers in metro LA area. My separation from the military is approaching and I'll be coming back to L.A which means there are lots of mods I'm itching to get done on my Z.

I had Technosquare in Torrance do my install of headers, cats, exhaust, intake and do the dynotune. Outstanding quality install in one day at a reasonable price.

PrecisionZ in Canoga Park Home Page and Corner3 Garage in Lake Forest gets lots of recommendations.

For dealers, I like Performance Nissan in Duarte and West Covina Nissan.

Westend Alignment in Gardena does great work, but need an appt roughly two weeks in advance.

Of course everything is far from me, so I was thinking about checking out SP engineering in the City of Industry SP Power index if I don't go to the dealer.
