Default Kanter Auto Parts Good?

I've heard of them and never dealt with them. They seem to have what I'm looking for. Let's hear it!

I have ordered from them, they seem ok. They seem to specialize in selling small parts for a little too much money, but they do ship quick and have a lot of stuff. They are more geared towards the person doing a restoration.

The couple times I used them it went off without a hitch. I usually phone and the people I talked to seemed real knowlegable.

I agree, good but expensive. But you have to pay if that is one of the only places you can find the parts you are looking for. Their staff is very knowledgable in what they sell. I would use them again

I've used them a couple of times for customer projects, like others have said, you'll have to open your wallet a bit more with them, but customer service is quite good.

I usually check NAPA or my local independent parts house first tho.

I've ordered a number of items from them, mostly brake and suspension parts and all of the parts have been first quality. But their prices are also a little high. I need a new water pump and theirs is about $100 with core exchange. NAPA is about half that, but the last time I got one from them didn't last long. So I will probably pony up and get the next one from Kanter.

I used them for my '51 Ford front suspension stuff and master cylinder. Had a $25.00 core charge and they issued a credit to me 2 days after I shipped it back to them. They couldn't have had it, checked it etc..in that short amount of time, but issued the credit anyway. Good service and if you're looking to buy a whole kit for something, they save you from hunting and tracking everything down. I will use them again.

I have uesd them before ...no problem,, drove up their a few time's also to match some odd ball stuff up,, they were a big help.

Also at a local show last year (Lead East) the owner drove back to his shop on Sunday,,got a part for a stranded out of state" Hot Rodder" so he could drive his ride back home.

I've bought quite a bit of stuff from them over the last 10 years. Almost always things I coudn't find anywhere else. Never had a problem and the quality always seemed good.

So far, so good for me.
I have bought the brake re-build kit and all 4 wheel cylinder for my Pontiac and I can say that I have had any problems with 'em. I would recommend them.

Have you tried Rare Parts in Ca. . They seem to have almost any suspension part in stock or they will make it . Hell they even had suspension pieces for the Facel on the shelf.
Kanters a good supplier and they are knowledgeable . He even had parts for the Facel but Fred dont let go of those to easy.
