Hello. I have 01 Grand Prix GTP. I started having trans issues the other day. Any recommended shops in the Chicagoland / Northwest Suburbs area?

The car is in Des Plaines now. I would really like to go to a place or person that will do a good and give an honest price.

Appreciate the help!

Thanks, I called them already. Definitely a good option but unfortunately my car is not drivable. Getting my car towed to Indiana is not feasible. I have not found any shops that want to just do a swap. The few that I found want a lot for labor which does not make that option feasible either.

Atomic Trans in Lombard has done good work for me in the past for reasonable money if you just need a basic R&R.

trans shipped from Tripleedge have local shop or pay someone on this site to put in the triple edge rebuilt.

Im sure that would be most reliable most reputable and most cost effective.

hell if i lived local id drop a trans and stuff a new one in less than a weekend for steak and beer dinner lol ive done enough its really not that hard to do.

Lots and lots of people on this site could drop and replace a trans in a w body with 1 arm and blind folded lol. seriously its pretty simple.

just my 2 cents buy a rebuilt trans from Triple edge find a local installer or pay someone here

:io:

What are the goals/outcome you want from this? You just want a junkyard trans swapped in, or a rebuilt stock trans dropped in, or are you wanting to go with a built transmission?
