Default Recommended shop to remove seized front caster bolt

My front caster bolt is seized... I don't have the tools and equipment to tackle this.

I'll be buying new Mugen bushings to replace them but was wondering if anyone knows a shop in around my area that could get this thing out?

Thanks

I had a seized camber bolt that showed up during one of my alignments at Honda, the Honda dealer didn't want to attempt the repair, which pissed me off.

I took it to a shop called Ricky Ratchets on Clarke Road and asked them to attempt the repair, and they got it freed up. They lubricated it to reduce the chance of seizing again, and it's been fine ever since 2-3 years now ?.

They aren't any special kind of specialty repair shop, I just thought that they would be more willing to give it a shot compared to Honda, with them being a smaller general repair shop. They have some decent alignment equipment, I don't know if they can do lowered cars but you could always ask, my car wasn't lowered at the time.

Scott at Can-Alignment would be good if you don't mind travelling out of town.
