    vatozone is 145
    orileys is 165

    auto zone = death and sucks big time.

    i work on cars every day. in the past year i have seen the quailty go past the toilet and stright to the sewers. my truck is dead as we type with a 7 month old reman caliper thats dead and frozen with the pads smoked off.

    i will only shop there if i need a name brand part thay sell if i have to shop there.

    Oreilleys is my choice for most anything. If they dont have it Napa is my next place, but i usually pay more there. I only go to Vhatozone for small stuff like oil, filters, pooky, grease...

    IIRC I got mine at the zone because it was cheap and warrantied. I could care less if it blows out once in a while as long as it has a lifetime warranty.
