Reputable Denver, CO shops?

Just today, I was charged 534 bucks to install (I bought parts myself) front rotors and calipers, repack bearings. Took 6 hours and on the way there this morning the rear driveshaft disintigrated so I limped it there in 4 wheel drive expecting to be able to rely on them to help. Instead, the guy isn't wise enough to get the numbers of the transfer case and instead his best option is to get a custom built driveshaft from Boulder shipped in after it's built! So it's at a place called B's Auto right now (I feel like my first-born is having surgery ) and I trust these guys but I'd like to find a place I could really trust, have no worries, you know?

Any resources at all, folks?
Not one-timers, but people like I can walk in and say "Jim sent me" and they'll go "Oh sure sure".

Thanks!

Pickering Automotive at 1st and Wadsworth in Lakewood has a pretty good reputation. I've used them a couple of times. They aren't cheap but they don't seem to gouge you.
There is a decent drive shaft shop at 56th and Holly. If you take in the remains, they can rebuild or replace it. Usually takes about 3 days.
