I was placing another order on rockauto.com and found this interesting website. I'm not sure how useful it is for rockauto (other than advertisement) but it is kind of interesting.

Basically, you can give this site 2 cars and it will compare the minimum replacement cost for hundreds of parts and summarize things.

http://www.rockauto.com/repairindex/

Its kind of interesting and could be useful if you were shopping for a new car.

Rockauto's parts cat. is WAY superior to the typ store's. Esp NAPA.. that one gives me fits, it keep losing my car info.
The indexing is great for something else, too. If you want to crossref parts.. like to see if a 97 Taurus AC clutch would work on a 99 Explorer.. you just open the indexes in two tabs.

Great site and great customer service. They've shorted me parts twice (2 out of 9 orders in the past year) but they've always made up for it without any fuss.


Another tip:
juggle around with buying different parts or if the item is available in multiple warehouses, selecting different sources. Sometimes it's worth paying $1 more for a part to consolidate shipping locations.

Really?
Parts for the 1993 FORD THUNDERBIRD LX 3.8L cost 1.11 times the cost of parts for a 1993 FORD THUNDERBIRD SC 3.8L.
