What web site do you search for parts?

Postby A112H » Fri Dec 17, 2010 6:20 pm

As the title suggest's I was wondering what website people are searching/buying parts from.
I mainly scope eBay and trade me and also check in on Yahoo Japan from time to time but unless you use a broker or know someone in Japan it is impossable to buy anything from.

I expected a fair bit of feedback on this one. Does nobody look internationally for parts and just sticks to eBay, trading post and stuff like that? Or is it a case of not wanting to share secret's?
I know there must be a trading post/yahoo/eBay/trade me sort of thing in China and Malaysia, things like that????

I take a look on eBay Aus and US and also trademe but looking anywhere just becomes logistically too difficult. There isn't too much that you can't get on those sites that you would be able to get anywhere else. Yes Yahoo Japan may have heaps of good stuff but it's logistically too difficult to get it here.

ebay is great but you can still get most mechanical parts from repco bursons etc, i usually use ebay for panels or cars in general or the local paper for wrecks.

gumtree, sigma-galant :D and sometimes being tricky with search terms brings up interesting things

RockAuto, eBay AU and US, trademe, Yahoo Auctions Japan (I know a broker), JNC, AE86DC, Auszoku, JDMST and here for the most part. I'll occasionally check Boostlosing classifieds, but unless you want hektix chromies or Commodore parts there's rarely anything good there :lol:

Does anybody have any luck with physical searching....in the likes of car/trade shows, race meetings, swap meets (particularly the ones out in the country)

or even just speaking to people who have a history of building mitsubihsis/chryslers.......i've found out that no matter how much you know of a particular car......someone always has a little hint/tip/trick up their sleeve that they have exposed in their experiences....


Certainly not dissing the search sited on the internet (ebay in particular).....they really are the best way to search by far........but i would'nt just rely on a computer to search parts.....theres still alot of people who still sell parts the old fashion way...thru newspapers, swap meets and word of mouth....food for thought

i like to use bursons auto parts. they generally are cheaper then ebay plus if they dont have it they will get it in within a few days. i get all my expendables like c clips o rings bearings etc from a local bearings and gaskets place. any parts i have trouble getting or are overpriced i go to ebay america. they have alot of cheap 4g54 stuff. i also have my local engine place they do all the machining and anything i lack the tools to do like lathes and mills and comercial parts washers when no amount of scrubbing will get it clean like carbon coated valves and exhaust ports. sometimes i go to wreckers for the real fiddly crap ut generally i prefer to replace things with new stuff particularly things that wear or perish like rubber and washers.

Buying from ebay depends on the actual seller. Having a good look at their feedback and selling history will give you a good idea if they are legit, quality, postage times, etc.

In other news I bought my first item off Yahoo Japan last week via Import Monster. An EX Lancer LSD diff is now on it's way to me. 8o|

I have used Import Monster a couple of times. It gives you access to Yahoo auctions Japan, translates and they organise all shipping. Problems are that its only available to Oz and the freight is expensive. On the up side it gives you access to all the rare Jap stuff easily.

It depends on the area where you are living. Because i buy from a local company in my area which provide best parts for vehicle. You can check on ebay and amazon because there are many companies which provide best quality parts.
