Default Trustworthy mechanics near Ipswich or Chelmsford?

Hi, just thought I'd ask around before taking another blind gamble. I work in Ipswich and live in the Chelmsford area in Mass. Does anyone have any reliable and good mechanics in either of these areas? I have a feeling I'm going to need some suspension work and I'm scared

Not too sure but something is going on in the front end. When I turn left or right at a slow speed usually when parking in a lot there's a thumping sound sound and I hear some squeaking too that wasn't happening before. It has 160k miles so things could be getting old
