    If you buy anything on eBay from Summit, don't know why you'd do it but I made the mistake of doing it, you won't get a valid tracking number.
    Called Summit requesting the tracking info and they said they can't provide any information on eBay orders any longer as per eBay. None. They told me to contact eBay, which can take an act of congress.

    Just sayin...

    My guess is because then you could bypass ebay buying whatever and they loose their 10%.

    I have avoided buying anything from JEGS or Summit through Ebay or Amazon....Shipping is always slower (time to actually ship it) and of course late tracking information. I ran into the same issue with Summit over eBay. They have a specific department that works ebay sales. You don't get the shipping deals or coupons on Ebay so why you would buy through ebay is beyond me.

    I didnt even know you could buy Summit items through Ebay.... And Summit usually ships fast so I dont know why anyone would go through Ebay at all.

    Summit sells through eBay. I've bought a ton of stuff via eBay that comes from summit. Never had an issue.

    I say! why go 3rd party, when you can go direct (for accountability) then you only have to worry about the 2nd party (shipper)

    I agree.

    Besides, Summit will price match, so if it's for sale for less on Ebay, just price match it.

    I normally order direct from Jegs. My order's usually come out of their Columbus store since I am only two hours away from them. I always order direct from them and never had any issues with shipping or customer service. I have gotten burned to many times ordering parts from eBay. Rockauto.com is also another good place to get parts, very fast shipping.

    Seems I always have issues with Jegs and RA, seems to always take a couple days to ship.
