Where to order parts - NOT AMAZON

To be honest I do t trust parts from Amazon. I have had a few things that I believe were cheap knockoff products so when it comes to my truck I don’t want that risk. So where do you all order stuff like ATF fluid, oil, filters, etc....

I have bought from Sumit and Dmax store...anyplace else you guys buy from?

I need to get some ATF (mobile delvac) and filter this week. Just curious

I source the Delvac at various local truck shops, Kenworth and the like. Most have moved to Delvac since the Transynd cases are gold plated now.

Trans filters, again a local Allison dealer truck shop. They'll have the spin-on, but they have to order the pan filter, since they only stock parts for Medium/Heavy Duty trucks, and those have a deep pan and deep pan filter.

Engine oil and other lubricants, once again local Schaeffer's Dealer.
Mob-1 filter from any Wally's you pass by, they all stock the M1-303a.

Hard parts, 1st go to is always Forum Vendor Rock.
Baldwin fuel filters I've been sourcing from Zoro.

I buy stuff on EBay always have research the seller. Like my FASS, was going to buy off ebay but if you order it from there they have to sell it at the list price to get a warranty and you have to make sure the seller is a actual dealer. So what I did was pay full price and get a discount on other merchandise Merchant does have a ebay account and sells stuff, that where I buy my filters and fluid for transmission service.
Like maybe a free Filter delete. Just got to know your seller!

Ive used amazon for quite a bit of filters and fluids. Thats the only place i can get the engine oil i run for my race truck at a reasonable price. But merchant automotive has good prices, as does dirty hooker diesel

Watch out on Amazon for Allison filters. I ordered a filter and a magnet once (few years ago) and the filter was smaller then the Allison filter I had and the magnet was maybe half the thickness of the original one I had. Needless to say I went to the shop and bought new ones that I know were original. That’s just 1 time I got crap from amazon

I like Amsoil as well, used to have my son as a dealer. I use it in my motorcycle and car, last oil change on the truck was a spur though so it got regular 15-40. The Amsoil I will say is just the best of all the synthetics in my honest opinion. Does anyone have a opinion on the Amsoil Torque drive fluid in a Allison?

I order parts pretty frequently from Amazon. I have never had an issue. You just have to research the seller and make sure you’re getting it from a reputable distributor.

If you want to go another route, merchant automotive and summit are a few good places that come to mind.
