Once you have found all the identification numbers, record them for reference when buying parts. Since the manufacturers change specifications, parts and vendors (companies that manufacture various components on the machine), providing the ID numbers is the only way to be reasonably sure that you are buying the correct parts.
Whenever possible, take the worn part to the dealer so direct comparison with the new component can be made. Along the trail from the manufacturer to the parts shelf, there are numerous places that the part can end up with the wrong number or be listed incorrectly.
The two places to purchase new parts for your vehicle - the accessory store and the franchised dealer - differ in the type of parts they carry.
While dealers can obtain virtually every part for your vehicle, the accessory dealer is usually limited to normal high wear items such as shock absorbers, tune-up parts, various engine gaskets, cables, chains, brake parts, etc.
Rarely will an accessory outlet have major suspension components, cylinders, transmission gears, or cases.
Used parts can be obtained for roughly half the price of new ones, but you can't always be sure of what you're getting. Once again, take your worn part to the wrecking yard for direct comparison.
Whether buying new, used or rebuilt parts, the best course is to deal directly with someone who specializes in parts for your particular make.
