Is it cheaper?

Does it cost less to buy parts from a AC Delco parts store than going to the dealer to purchase these same parts?

Reason I ask, is because on the AC Delco website their parts catalog doesn't provide prices for their parts, and I'm looking to get OEM parts for my car.

Any site that won't post prices, or any store that won't tag/ mark/ price their items.... I won't do business with. Even a yard sale, if I have to ASK the price, well, that's too much work. It's a hassle, and, there's a good chance that if I have to ask, I can't afford it...

At my dealership, since I bought the car from them, they knock off 20%.

Get the part number and check AMAZON.com or EBAY. You'd be surprised at the price difference.

The reason I'm asking is because every time I have purchased aftermarket brakes, the pad is always thicker than OEM and I'm starting to think that they are constantly being pressed against the rotor causing it to heat up under driving conditions which then cause glazing to occur and end up giving me horrrrrible brake squeal.

If I have to post of a video of what I mean I will. This isn't the typical brake squeal you guys always talk about.


Which is why I want to go OEM but trying to see if the actual retail location is less expensive than the dealer since I'm sure dealer wants some type of profit too.

If you have the part numbers you need, check into the discount GM parts sites and see who has the best prices and go from there.
