Have you checked RockAuto.com? They have excellent product at good prices and they ship quickly. You may not have time to wait for it this time, but take a look over there and see if you like it.
Good Luck and God Bless

I've done biz with all three (AZ, Oriely, NAPA) worst is easily O'Rielly-Kragen
NAPA usually more expensive but more knowledgeable. Always examine parts well as manufacturers do make mistakes now and then. Lowest price provider might buy lower quality parts from mfr. We won't get into how statistical sampling works here - basically one or two bad parts in a batch of a hundred may reject the whole batch. Send to Kragen, Sears, JC Whitney etc.

gonna be hits and misses at all but i definately have stores I get certain things from first. In my area I have Autozone, o'reilly, Carquest and Napa. Fortunately the NAPA's around me have knowledgeable people that have been around for a while. I will buy there first for my suspension parts even though it is more expensive but they are better quality. Brakes are NAPA or oreilly (they just bought out Kragen here). Autozone is typically for the quick things where i'm looking for best price (bulbs, gaskets, parts for my saturn). At least around here, and northern California when I lived there, the most knowledgeable parts people have been at NAPA. Very rarely do I find someone real knowledgeable at Autozone, but I have met a few.David

With any business, be it auto parts or an antique shop, it all depends on how much the company is willing to invest in good employees and training. Cutting hours and payroll and sticking the cute little girl you hired away from McDonald's on the cash register for eight bucks an hour will show a quick short-term profit, but when your company goes down the crapper in ten years, you've got no excuse....
