Midwest builder to replace steerer tube?

Hi -

Can you guys recommend someone in the midwestern US (I'm in Indiana) -- or farther afield if necessary -- who could replace steerers in a couple of forks? (forks also need alignment, but maybe a bikeshop could do that)

I know of at least a couple of builders in Indiana, but I'm new to this, and I'm not sure it's the kind of thing people do.

Also, what might such a service generally cost?

Thanks for any help you can provide. Sorry for the newb questions.

Eric
