If you've got no worries about passing, i.e emissions issues from a cat delete or and thing like that it really doesn't much matter. In VA all they do is put it up on the lift, check brakes, wheel bearings, look under to make sure no lines are about to break, check all your lights work. Then for emission they just plug in and if theres no codes your good and they send you on your way.

Just when you go to the place ask if you can watch while they do it your worried about them messing anything up.

Definitely worries about passing. The car is low and I have an aftermarket exhaust.

Check out what laws are on the books, again I know in VA your allowed 1 fault code, anything beyond that they wont pass it. As far as height youd have to check out laws too, I think if you go to some small corner station that does them there not gunna give a shit.

I know this isn't really answering your question, but I don't know of any specific shops that will just push you through. But I do know as long as your big ticket things are working smaller privately owned shops don't usually give you a hard time, in my experience at least.
