My mom's '07 Cobalt has a bad outer tie rod end and the brakes are pulsating so I ordered AC Delco Advantage front brake pads (will have the rotors turned and replace the pads...has almost 90k miles anyway) and a tie rod end from Rockauto.com. Tie rod end was like $25 and the pads were like $21. I can check the receipt if anyone cares to know the exact price but I thought it was pretty good compared with aftermarket parts from a typical auto parts store.
But I have to ask, is AC Delco stuff the exact same stuff that the car came with, or that I would receive if I went to the parts counter at the Chevy dealer? Pads are made in India, tie rod end is from Taiwan at any rate. If AC Delco is the same I probably should have went with Moog or something considering how crappy Cobalt front end parts have turned out to be (been back to the dealer many times for front end clunks, thankfully my mom bought a GMPP, though it just expired).
