Suspension Shop

Any recommendations for an east of PHX suspension shop?
I don't want to drive to Scottsdale or ship forks.
I just need a reliable, quick, shop, that stocks common parts.

Maybe too many fan boys.

To the OP, you need to give more information about what you want in a bike. I'll go ahead and suggest you check out a Yamaha WR250R.
