I ordered parts from Speedway motors and Summit on Wednesday. Both showed up today using the standard free shipping option.

The only parts website I've ever had problems with has been rock auto. Their customer service policy is send it back so we can see if there was really a problem. Shipment never delivered? There's literally no refunds or reimbursement since they need to have am item returned to issue a refund


Amazon is one of the best for the common parts and they have a growing number of parts in prime shipping

Amazon pricing isn't the greatest. You have to hunt for deals on the site and then gamble on non prime suppliers. I can usually find better deals for the same parts outside Amazon.

For instance, I just ordered a full 460 gasket set from summit for 10 bucks less than Amazon. Got here in two days with free shipping. Would have to have a prime account to get free 2 day from Amazon making the price difference larger.

Amazon is good for some things just not auto parts.

I regularly use both Rock Auto & Amazon for parts without a single issue to date. The free shipping with prime is a factor to compare with. Moving more & more to Amazon.

I may look towards Jegs now also for stuff for the stang.

Wheel bearing hub assemblies are $159 for my truck at autoparts stores, $120 at rock auto, and $69 on amazon with prime. Considering none of them have more than 1 year warranties and I can view 60 positive reviews I'm taking amazon over any other sites.

I've noticed amazon is consistently cheaper than ebay as well in most cases

More love for Jegs/Summit
I just called Summit about a 3 yr old MOOG inner tie rod end that is starting to get loose, gave them my order number, they said we have another one on it's way for free, and they are sending ups to pick up the old one. A+++++++

that's pretty impressive.

I did end up with Jegs spec'ing me the wrong bump steer kit, but since I was already in conversations with AJE, they just shipped the right stuff to me, and we bypassed jegs.

Jegs for that price match and no tax (haven't used them for returns).

Amazon for the free shipping, price sometimes, and ease of returns.

Summit is what I used to use a lot, and every return I had with them was super duper easy.

Rockauto is on my shit list. I've had one order that was missing some of the parts in it, but I had the other parts so no biggie. The last one was them listing the wrong part, but you gotta eat the shipping to return it and that wasn't cheap....

Love++++
Sucks that I have issues with half of the shit I order from Jegs or Summit but wow the service is so good. I ordered 4, 5gal jugs from Jegs, 2 of the caps came cracked where the threaded insert goes in, she said no problem we have 2 more coming, keep the ones you have. I told her I needed 2 vent's too, for my other jugs, can you put them in the box and I pay for them, she said no problem, we will just toss them in for free with the replacement caps, awesomeness!
