Ive been waiting too damn long for parts

First it was 3 weeks for a stupid throttle cable bracket adapter, now its been about two weeks waiting for the valve springs.
THAT DOES IT!!!
If my local speed shop doesnt have the parts I need in stock, from now on, im going through mail order. I tried to support the little guys but they take too damn long.
Anyhoo,
Has anyone heard anything or had experience with this P.A.W. company?? The parts are really cheap but are the products??

I have ordered parts from PAW. I always ordered name brand parts from them to insure quality. Only problem make sure they have it IN STOCK.
If they don't they will bill your credit card then order it from manuf. You pay for it before they even get it. Their back order tracking system sucks!
On instock items they do have good service and accept returns without
problems.Only normal requirments-uninstalled,all packaging etc.
I have found that I personally like Summitt alot better. but PAW
does do machine work,never had any personally done so can't say
about quality.
Hope this helps you

Try Summit or Jegs, I've dealt with Summit and had no problems plus they have free shipping and the part arrived quickly.

Use Summit, the service people are wonderful to deal with and after a while they start calling you by your First name when you call. Their tech line is very helpful and shipping is right on time with when they tell me it will be in my hands.

PAW is alright, they have been around a long time and usually have what you need in stock. Send for one of their catalogs, it is about an inch and a half thick, kind of like the old Sears wish books in the old day, opps I forgot you have not been around that long (another smart ***** remark). They have engine parts for a lot of the older cars even the AMC and some Studebaker stuff plus headers and some engine adapters. My 2 cents worth.

Unless you ask specifically, they will not offer to tell you if parts are not in stock, and I think sometimes they lie! Summit is about the best I have dealt with. The next one I plan on trying is Speedway, thanks to Willys. Gonna get shocks for my C-Cab

I have bought a lot from Speedway over the years and they seem to have good service.
