Anyone ever used this vendor?

They appear to have prices just as good as gmpartsdirect.com and they dont wait 7-10 days to ship it. Their shipping charges are less also.

gmpartsdirect.com is actually a local vendor from my town (Winston-Salem, NC) but they won't let me go by and purchase the parts on-site. They said I had to do it through the website, pay full price for the shipping, and it still would take the 7-10 days before they ship it.

ac-direct.com will usually ship it out the same day and their shipping charges are cheaper. They are based out of somewhere in NY.

Geez...AC Delco direct, hmm, I would if GMpartsdirect gets there parts from AC Delco direct and has to raise the prices because of it

Oh, and since gmpartsdirect.com doesn't ship to Canada...maybe a-c direct does

Default .

Just did a search on yahoo for 'discount AC Delco'

I ordered some parts from them yesterday so I will let you guys know if it was a good or bad decision.

I had them shipped 2 day air cheaper than the shipping costs from gmpartsdirect.com for ground.

This site doesn't have regular GM parts, but if you are needing AC-Delco stuff then they look like a better choice.

Default Shipped!

O2 sensors came in right on time. Quick shipping and everything was just as ordered. Looks like a great place to order stuff from if you need AC Delco parts.

Replacing the O2'* was a little harder with the 7/8" wrench. I was just too cheap to go a buy one of those specialized sockets. The one after the CAT was easy, but it was hard to get leverage on the one at the exhaust manifold. Where there is a will there is a way. Large screwdriver with a piece of wood to pry against got the wrench moving. Replacing the one after the CAT got rid of the Check Engine light problem also.

Just FYI...
