Default Seattle-North 5EAT rebuild?

Any recommendations for a transmission shop in King or SnoCo (prefer north of Seattle, but not an absolute) for rebuilding the 5EAT in my stock LGT wagon?

Thanks. Gave them a call. They donít do this work, and had no recommendations for a shop that does, unfortunately.

AWD Auto in Kirkland. I know they rebuild many 5 speeds.
Its odd that Drive Auto Sport said they don't do trans rebuilds when they are owned and operated by AWD Auto

Updates: Drive Auto Sports is relocating to a spacious shop in Everett! Thatís sweet news for me. (Also will be next door to a great pizza place, so thereís that.)

As for my Leggy, took it to reputable shop (Edís Transmission Northgate). They were able to pull the code (rear speed sensor), but could not diagnose a specific issue or get the transmission to misbehave. Itís been a couple weeks since then, and it hasnít thrown a code or mis-shifted since. *shrug*
Looks like Iíll just keep on enjoying it while it lasts!

How are your bushings? If stock they may need replacing. I had to replace the rear diff cradle because it was shot and leaking. Lots of movement back there. Are your shifts fouling up on hard acceleration? Any particular gear? Are you getting any hard clunks on upshifts or downshifts while shifting manually?
