Default Anyone use rockauto.com?

When I need parts I shop around on the net to find the best deal but I usally get what's cheapest in the area. When I thought I needed a FPR I was shocked how much Advance,Autozone and Orielly's wanted. At those places it was around $86+tax! Rockauto.com has one for $28,they also offer more expensive ones that I guess might be better but I am on disability and pinching pennys. I paid $40.80 total with 2nd day shipping,I ordered it around 11:30 AM last Wed and it arrived around 1:30 PM Friday. Their site says usally it takes on day to process the order but mine got done quick I guess I would guess 80% of their parts are much cheaper than the local parts stores,a few are the same price. They also offer quite a few Motorcraft parts also.

I have used them a couple times. Sometimes you can get pretty good deals... I got a new clutch set for my B2 shipped to my door for $41. All the local places were at least $100.

i've used them too, but they arent always the cheapest. once you figure in shipping, sometimes local parts places are comparable. but when i do buy from them, it's usually a good deal.

Just bought a fuel filter, battery hold down, and new oil filler cap from them last week. Well pleased with their service. They said one of the items wasn't in their warehouse and would delay shipping by one day. Even with that, I ordered on Wednesday and received the items on Saturday.
