In my first experience with RA, I got hosed on shipping. (from 4 different locations). Like $60.
What I do now, is look for the truck icon and a note at the bottom of the description that says the item you are ordering will ship from the same location as items already in your shopping cart.
Also, when I need something, I order other parts that I know I will need in the future - Belts, cap/rotor, wires, bearings, seals, boots, brake pads/shoes, ball joints, tie rod ends, caliper and wheel cylinder rebuild kits... etc.
However, I am ordering for 5 Subaru's. So I'm always looking to buy parts for these Soob's that keep following me home.
Anyone know where I can get a barrel of Delo 15w-40 ??? ha, ha... not funny! RonBroke.
