Yeah, but if a GKN last 100k, and a NAPA lasts 20k, who wants the hassle of going back to the shop 3-4 extra times?
I have done 90%+ of the work on my cars over the last 30 years. Part is cost, part is that I like tinkering and the satisfaction of doing things right, but a BIG part is I hate dealing with shops. Even with the best ones, the logistics are a pain, and most are (sadly) not very good.
