    Default Anyone every try eBay brakes?

    I need brakes for my expedition, and it's gonna run around $450 at the parts stores, or if I look on eBay I can get a set for around $250. Anyone ever try any out?

    If Rich can't hook you up. I would use one of the one's listed below. In my experience Amazon is usually the faster then Rock auto especially if you have prime. But if you need the parts right away search online for a coupon code for Advance auto. Then buy online and pick up in the store 30 minutes later.

    Yeah I was looking at some drilled slotted ones. I have a trailer on the truck 75% of the time I'm using it, and the extra braking power seems like it could be nice. The rotors on it are absolutely shot. The look like they're drilled already from how bad the pits are in them. Lol!

    Amazon's search for car parts blows. I usually copy and paste the part numbers out of Rock Auto into Amazon. I just had to order a set for the Flex and went with Amazon just to get two day shipping since I couldn't wait a week to get them in. Surprised they made it here, Amazon put each rotor into oversized boxes with just some of the brown paper in it, the rotors were hanging out of their boxes and the Amazon boxes.

    Rock Auto does a decent job for my brake orders. It's always hundreds less than the Local places.

    The ones I'm considering are called "hart brakes" they're out of Poland. I would think they're a higher quality product, and can't find many reviews, but the ones reviews I could find were all positive.

    Brakes are like helmets not something you want to cheap out on.
