Default best auto parts store

i go to autozone myself and get the duralast stuff for my truck i think its pretty good stuff. is it or not before i keep buying their stuff. because i am fixing to but a whole bunch of stuff for my truck like starter water pump and belt and tenisoner brakes rotors and alternator nad ill changer fuel filter and air filter and plugs and get and accel coil pack. ill am going to be getting all of the gold stuff. because i have been saving for awail and my truck has 130xxx on it so its time for sum new stuff. i bought a battery a month ago and its got me in the mood to work on it. and its something the crew can help with so we can get together and have fun ill probley get a new powerseering pump because my makes an noise turning and might put the right size tires on it? and i ordered headlights and 06 mirriors off ebay. so back to the subject sorry i got excited. so is duralast gold stuff pretty good?

I always use motorcraft products on the truck

Not sure if autozone has motorcraft or not. I always shop at Oriellys

Everywhere about me sucks balls now. Thrifty's was bought out by Carquest, so now they're Carquest. Schucks was bought out by O'Reiley's, so now they're Schucks O'Reiley. Can't get any of the parts you used to get back under their old banner. Freakin' sucks. Only good is Baxter's Auto Parts(not nationwide, I think just the Portland area). They can get anything and everything you want, at a decent rate. But the convienient places to get stuff have turned to sh!t.

So that's why all the Orielly people have Schucks on their shirts now

Yeah....O'reiley's bought Checker/Shucks/Kragen(CSK) brand of stores. We didn't have any Oreiley's in my area or even section of the country til they bought 'em out. We don't have Advance or PepBoys either.

yeah autozone around here alwayas has what you need the oreillys around where i live has nothing at all and napa is awful put those two together and you would not have a bus full of parts... plus they treat you like an idiot since i am young advanced is alright. and the ford dealership is like private owned and when you order something from them they market up 20 or 25% for coming to them. so thats why i go there and they sell sum motorcraft stuff but not alot and i would like to keep my truck all the same brand so i know whats on it..

it's crazy cause I live in Springfield Mo headquarters for Oriellys so if a store doesn't have it they send you to the warehouse and you can pick it up there.

I'm lucky, here in Gadsden we have an Advanced that is staffed with ppl that actually know what they are talking about not a bunch of ricer punks just here to sell crappy bolt on junk. Within two blocks we have an Advanced, Napa, Orielly's, and Vatozone. I'll wait on ordered parts from the Advanced before I shop at any of the other ones.

The Advanced Auto Parts is where I get everything. Motorcraft, Royal Purple, tool rental, everything. The Autozone that was just built doesnt really have much yet since its new. No orileys around here. Napa is too expensive for a limited selection. Pepboys rips you off no matter what you get. So, around here its Advanced.

Personally, I can't stand Autozone. Nobody in them knows anything about cars, with a select few exceptions. On the rare occasion that I do go into one, the counter person is usually in a pissy mood for whatever reason. I go to Advance for all the oils and all that. But when it comes to parts, I try to go to Napa. And pretty much all the auto stores nowadays have overnight delivery to their store unless you need to get some oddball part or you have an oddball car.

Pepboys is right down the street from me so I usually go there, and Kragens is close by so sometimes I'll go there. Interestingly enough I'm starting to do more and more shopping online (via amazon.com) including even auto stuff... free shipping and no tax makes it easy.
