    How do you guys/gals buy parts for your rig, online,mailorder or local shop?
    Witch one do you feel is the best deal?
    Also witch part from this list should I buy first:
    New set of headers, old ones are warped
    QuickAir2 onboard compressor, have no air and am frequentlly airing down
    CDPlayer w/removable face, tape deck eats tapes
    Front Dana44 powerlock & gear change to 4.11, currently have 3.73 with the rear Powerlock and front open diff

    I gonna have some extra cash soon and just tring to figure out witch way to throw it.
    Thanks

    For what it matters here's my oppinion
    1 Buy headers, take care of your power plant and it will take care of you.
    2 Gears. dont scimp on traction
    3 Air compressor. Handy but not essential
    4 Sound system rated last cause there aint nothing that sounds as sweet as a good runnin GM V8
    Had good luck buying parts online at www. wrenchead.com and www.summitracing.com . Have fun and good luck

    I buy on line when it comes to name brand things I want, you can usually find a place with free shipping. I got my lift from macromotive.com and shipping was free...when it comes to little things like bearings, seals, little po-putt stuff Ill go to Advance auto parts. And as for the extra cash throw it my way, I am going to apply for a part time job so I can feed this K5 habit!

    Yes I do, What would you like to know?
    It is a DANA Power-Lock positraction with preloads so it's considered the tightest posi unit DANA came out with plus it's rebuildable!!
    Soon I hope to have one for my Dana44 Front.
    Hope this helps
