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.
