Hey, I am sure someone with more insight than me will give you better advices, but let me share my thoughts.

First of all you need to set some parameters. Are you ready to face harsh winters or this doesn't matter; or will you happy at city universities or would you prefer an isolated campus... More importantly, you need to refine your research interests to find labs. And don't forget to think about the prestige & industry ties & proud factor of the schools. You see, these parameters will affect your happiness therefore your efficiency. I think these parameters are more important than the universities' ranks.

For example, lets say you into robotics- you would love being in a cool big campus where climate x or y - then i would tell you at least 5-6 schools. So think whats important to you. Then do a list of ambitious, reach and safety schools.

People who don't know you can't choose or suggest schools for you.

You're missing some really important info here - namely, what you actually want to work on for a PhD. Mechanical engineering is way too broad for anyone to suggest any schools.
