Can you not find the parts locally? Ball joints & floor mats are
easily available at any parts store.. IMO it's too much trouble
ordering online unless you can't find it anywhere else or it's one
hell of a deal. What if they get shipped wrong, or they are
defective?? Now you have to send them back costing even more in
Go to a real parts store like FEDERATED, NAPA, etc. Stay away from
Advance & Auto Zone.. Bottom line is you get what you pay for..
I've ordered online for OEM parts. Usually cheaper with shipping plus I
didn't have to go out of my way to try and make it to the motorcraft
distributor for their short hours and hope that it isn't one of the
times they've decided not to sell to the public... (they've done that on
and off) Time and gasoline is worth something too. For some body parts
(like a fog lamp) the only local source was the dealer and the dealer
was easily beat.
For things that I don't need OEM for or figure the NAPA part will be the
OEM with the logo ground off, I'll just go to the local NAPA.
As many auto parts stores as there are around here, I never go online
for auto parts.Unless if I ever decide to fix up my 1948 Willys Jeep, or
if I ever need any parts for my 1914 Ford Model T Runabout Roadster
car.I need a new inner tube and reproduction seat springs and new
reproduction upholstery top kit and new reproduction seat upholstery for
my Model T Ford.
