From where do you purchase your brake rotors?

I'm checking out rockauto, but their shipping prices double the purchase.

I have used rockauto for rotors before but not for an alltrac. I think the ones I have on the car now are some cheap ebay rotors. Personally I just google search the crap out of whatever im looking for until I find the ONE.

rockauto. Paid like $25 in shipping for all 4 rotors

make sure the parts you're ordering are all coming from the same warehouse (even if you end a paying a dollar or two more for a part) becuase the shipping does get out of hand when parts are coming from 2,3,4 different locations.

What is wrong with your local parts store?

Bought all 4 of my rotors from rockauto, got the beck/arnley premium rotors. The front fit great. For some reason i had to grind the backing plates down on the rears for the rear rotors to not rub, ever since i did that i have had no issues.
