Aftermarket and original equipment (OE) parts manufacturers are now typically one and the same. However, it is still sometimes the official OE brands that are the first to offer less commonly replaced parts for the newest vehicles.

RockAuto.com has had ACDelco (GM) and Motorcraft (Ford) parts for many years. You may not be aware that RockAuto now also carries the other American "Big Three" OE brand, Mopar. Need factory valve covers for a new Dodge Charger? RockAuto has those valve covers and other Mopar parts for late model Chryslers.

Some of the brands may not be as familiar as Mopar, but RockAuto has hard to find OE parts for other late model daily drivers too. For example, Auto 7 provides RockAuto with many complex OE parts for Hyundai and Kia cars.

in regards to brakes, rockauto does not say what type of caliper (or any other part) is being sold, ie 16P or 16PB for the GT6, for example. It simply lists available for all years. The same goes for caliper piston and brake hoses.
It is tough to buy these parts with no specific references, such as OEM numbers. This information is critical!

I need to buy O2 sensors for my truck and timing belt for my corolla, and their prices are very tempting-more modern cars so the info is likely (nearly) spot on.

My apologies - I didn't see the email indicating there was a response to this forum! You can view all the manufacturers we stock by visiting our Manufacturers page on our website. We do not stock either Stanpart or Unipart.

byakk0 - We pass the information and pictures we receive from the manufacturer. Typically if a manufacturer has not included specific information, it's because that information isn't needed to select the correct part for your vehicle.

Thanks, but it actually is important. Not everything fits all models. My car comes with the 16P style brake calipers. Later models use the 16PB. If I were to order a rebuild kit, for example, and the caliper type was not specified, I would have no idea what I was getting until it arrived. Why take the chance? Other vendors( ie your competitors) list this sort of critical information. If the manufactures do not supply it, perhaps you should demand it.

as far as I know the 16P and 16PB are interchangeable (I could be wrong), unless it is the metric version. But I would want the same style of caliper both sides and not take a crap shoot hoping I was getting the correct one.
(I only bring up brakes as that is my current project.)


What are the chances of listing OEM part numbers with the aftermarket parts you offer? Many of us use the OEM part numbers as a reference, and that would be an immense help.

Feel free to post questions here if you have questions or concerns about products manufactures offer, which model's the product truly fits, ect.. There are plenty of us here that want additional sources for parts and any of us would be willing to help you get the correct information. Just a thought!

btw, it's great that you respond. Thank you!

We obtain OE numbers and fitment information directly from manufacturers. If the manufacturer doesn't provide that, we can't show it to you. Do you have an example (the part number along with the year, make, model, and engine size) where you believe we're missing necessary fitment information? I can then check with the manufacturer if that's the case. As I said before, all the information to correctly choose a part should already be listed in the catalog (and manufacturers/we don't want to include information that, while potentially useful, is superfluous/unimportant), but if we're missing something vital we certainly want to add it to our catalog!

FYI, my post was tongue-in-cheek as Stanpart is the brand name of Triumph motor car parts and Unipart is the brand name of British Leyland motor car parts. Both are dead as the dodo.

I do not see any Lucas parts on your website. That brand is still alive.

I don't think that Lucas is making parts for our cars anymore. The stuff for our cars packaged in Lucas colors is probably from India or China.

That may be but these are parts that are not designed for the American cars Rock Auto is catering to. I also do not see anything from Burlen (SU & Zenith carbs) either.
