Trusted Mechanic?

Hi everyone. I'm looking for a recommendation on a respectable mechanic to service my 04 IS300. I am approaching 120k service so I wanted to save a nickel by not doing that at a dealership. Preferably located in Stockton/Central Valley area, but I'm willing to drive a bit for quality service.
Thanks

If you want to go to up the 5, check out Affinity Performance in Rancho Cordova

They've done all my work on the IS300: water pump, coilovers, supra clutch conversion

i wrote techno toy tuning for an alignment as i am somewhat local to t3; they recommended affinity. Affinity was super quick to get back to me, but i was quoted almost 150 for an alignment. seems kinda high, but i haven't gotten one in years so i have no idea what the going rate is. other than that, the guy was super nice.

Don't remember the exact cost, but it was about 8 hours of labor. They also installed some suspension arms and did an alignment too, so that time was not just for the clutch
