Default SE Wisconsin Shop Recommendation?

Can anyone recommend a shop in the area of Southeast Wisconsin(I'm located in the Kenosha area) that can take a look at my '05 Ver8 Swapped Wagon? I've developed a nasty shake in the drivetrain and cannot seem to figure out where the hell it's coming from. Mounts seem to be good, and at this point the car is basically undriveable above 10mph, so I'd like to have AAA tow it to a shop to get someone else to take a look at it.

AAA will tow up to 100 miles free of charge, so anywhere within that range would be awesome...

Thanks!

10mph and it shakes that bad? sounds like a badly bent rim.

any local mom and pop should be able to diagnose something that blatant. but you could try o'reilly imports in Milwaukee. or p&l by Chicago.

sorry, don't know of any in the Kenosha area.

It's not wheel/hub related, sorry I should've been more descriptive. It's in the front half of the drivetrain. I'm fairly competent at diagnosing/fixing. Wheel bearings were just replaced, wheels were just balanced. Wheels/Axles are not shimmying at all. Engine does not have any noticeable shake at any RPM in idle.

The problem occurs on jackstands and when viewed from under the car is seen as the engine/Transmission oscillating from side to side when in gear, and the shake gets faster as speed increases.

It seems like the symptoms related to a bad mount or a bad driveshaft(U joint/mount) but none of those appear to be excessively worn or have abnormal amounts of play. So I'm truly stumped and would like someone else to look at it.

I Suppose I could take it to any ol' mom and pop shop, but would prefer a Scooby specific shop if there's not one too far away. Mainly because everything on the car is Ver8 swapped(entire drivetrain), so if we have to get into getting parts and everything, it's a bit complicated.

So right now it's looking like I'll be calling P&L in the morning if no one else can recommend anything closer.

All the shops in the Chicagoland area are in a close vicinity from one another. You could also call sixstar motorsports.

To piggyback on this thread, since there don't seem to be any non-dealer Subaru specialty shops in SE Wisconsin:

Can anyone recommend any general mom&pop shops or chains for basic work?
I'm in Racine-Milwaukee.

Any dealers that do good work and ones to avoid?

Just bought an 08 WRX (my first Subie) from Wilde in Waukesha, and it's got some issues.

Quantum performance in Port Washington. Otherwise you are going to have to go across the boarder.
