Most mechanics want to sell you the parts since they can charge markup and make money. You are lucky if you can find a good mechanic that will allow you to provide the parts.
Rockauto has the best return and warranty policy of any company I have dealt with. I buy most of my car parts from them. They have yet to let me down, even if I order the wrong part.
