Copied this from another board. I've known this for a while but just saw it come back up and figured I would share it with you guys in case you didn't know how to do this.

So as the title says....

Go Here: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/catalog.php

Search through the catalog till you find your specific car model. Stop after you select the engine.

Your address bar should read something like "http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,carcode,1333381" The numbers at the end are your car's code #.

Use this link, but replace the X's after "carcode=" with your car's code. http://www.rockauto.com/RSS/vehiclefeeds.php?carcode=xxxxxxx&m=wc&l=en&html=true


Viola. If you need normal replacement parts you can save a buttload of money.

So for example, I have a 1998 Cherokee and the link would be:

http://www.rockauto.com/RSS/vehiclefeeds.php?carcode=1315943&m=wc&l=en&html=true

Enjoy!

I've used Rockauto for years.  Cheapest place to find Timkin Unit Bearings.  Shipping is fast.  It may say 6-8 days, but in actuality they show up in 2-3.

That's exactly what I do. Just set a bookmark for each of my vehicles and check it from time to time.
