JIC/Cross NA Headquarters and shop in Alhambra

I got my kit installed at the Cross headquarters in Alhambra and thought it's a place worth sharing if you need something installed or for an alignment done by hand!! The lead tech is Bryan and he's worked on race teams and said they all did their alignments this way. I was wondering why they didn't have an alignement rack. It does take a couple hours. They also do exhausts and build race cars there. He recently completely gutted a Mitsu EVO down to the frame so they could acid dip it to strip all the paint to try to save some weight. It's pretty amazing since he pretty much does all the work.

Here are some of their cars.

The owner's 997 TT with about 600 WHP:


Their drift car:


Their race car:


Owner's GTR with about 600 WHP with their dyno in backround:

They're at the corner Mission and Raymond, BUT there's NO SIGN. I saw the lift and that's how I found them.

Do they also do installations too of all different products or just their own? I live like 5 mins away from there. Didn't know there were quality garages in the area.

I'm pretty sure they do since the garage part is Zeil Motorsports and seems like a somewhat separate entity, though the whole thing is owned by the same guy. Just ask to speak wtih Bryan since one of the sales guys tried to charge me $100/hr when their true rate is $80/hr. As of right now, they don't have any sales guys. He's very cool and knows a lot, but kinda quiet.
If they were closer, I'd have all my work done there.

Yeah, I posted there since I wanted the guru's input on the kit and he gave some great info on suspensions in general in the same thread. We are missing out here.
I split it up a little here since there are sub-forums.

Just a follow-up on them.
They have decided to move production to the US. They were having trouble getting a steady stream of parts from Japan. They should be getting stuff soon and the EVO was one of the first cars they were working on.
