Free shipping, is costly,……..
Maybe the thread will go political instead! 🤐Call NPD and they'll find them for you. Honestly I've always used RTV and no gasket, no problem. Let the flaming begin...... lol
^^^^ThisHonestly I've had very good luck at Orielly's for the common stuff. If they don't have it, they'll get it later that day or the next, and I have a Professional account, so pricing isn't usually an issue.
You said free shipping for Singles, but what if I'm 👰Well I imagine that diff gasket is going to sit in inventory at a mustang supplier a lot longer than it will at Summit, who supplies to a bigger market than just one model. Maybe NPD moves more of them.
For more generic parts like these (fel-pro gaskets, etc.) I use rockauto and add more items from the same shipping location, their shipping is usually ~$10 but their parts prices are way lower and they usually have multiple brands to pic from (favorite brand).
Otherwise I look on amazon for low price/ free shipping for singles or have my local O'reillys get it in same day or next for free (BWD ignition, fel-pro, etc.) if their price is close enough.
I'll third that. O'Reilly's is my go-to for common parts. I'm surprised what I can find for my 6 cylinder there! Wheel bearings, axle seals, gaskets, motor mounts, filters, etc.^^^^This
I've had good luck as well at Orielly's for common parts. Picked up Fel-Pro oil pan and valve cover gaskets from Oreily's not too long ago. Pricing was about the same as buying online. I've had good luck with Amazon too.
O'Reillys are actually pretty good for me, one just recently opened up and have slowly become my go to. Autozone here you can end up waiting 15+ minutes just to talk to an employee. The O'Reillys being new is typically quiet and they have usually had what I need there.I did a search for the subject gasket and our local AutoZone and O'Reilly's have it for $4.29. One has it in stock and the other you'd have to wait a day to pick it up at the store for no extra charge.
If they were cheaper than available locally and I wasn't in a hurry, absolutely. The closest auto parts store to me is a 40 minute round trip, plus the time in the store, sometimes ordering online is simpler.I mean, would you order spark plugs from NPD?
