I use rockauto quite a lot. Partsdinosaur also has some good deals on OEM (and OEM-like) engine hardware- particularly cheap source for HLAs.

RockAuto FTW! Except for their ******* spam email adverts. I get a mail from them daily.

advanceautoparts if the great coupon codes still work.

Rockauto usually always has a %5 off code too.

Search for those on retailmenot.com

So far between rockauto, carpartsdiscount.com, and carpart.com. carpart.com has the lowest total price and the nicest web interface. Total price was within $20 dollars. rockauto was most expensive, but did not include discount code. carpart.com seems exactly like getcoolparts.com. Right down to the free shipping on orders of 49.95 or more.

Thanks for the help

Another big thumbs up for Rockauto. Only place that had rear caliper rebuild kits in stock at a decent price. Plus, they don't screw you on shipping. Most places wanted 30 bucks and up for the parts, and another 5-10 buck for shipping. Rockauto was under 25, and less than 3 bucks to ship.

Rockauto or Advanced. Google for discount codes for either before finalizing order.

When I rebuilt the G10 on the Metro I used parts dinosaur and no one could touch them. Might not be the same for all parts though.

Biggest problem with Rockauto is they ship from 4 different warehouses and will charge you accordingly. So some times it pays to get the 2nd cheapest part IF it ships from the same warehouse as other **** in your cart.

True, but they do have a screen that shows you which warehouses your various parts would be shipping from, so you can fine-tune accordingly.

It does get annoying if you're ordering half a dozen small, cheap parts, but their selection of common maintenance items (bearings, balljoints, gaskets, stuff like that) is hard to beat.

another vote for rockauto.
ordered chrom-moly rings, they got here in 2 days, were excellent quality, and are still holding up fine. zero oil consumption.

good quality, great price, fast shipping
