To the point Ogre has made several times . . . it helps to buy local to avoid this hassle.

I actually prefer the best of both worlds. If Autozone, Pepboys, or Advance Auto have the part you want (and the name brand you want), you can usually find the cheapest price at their online site or their Ebay store . . . often with a 20% off coupon code and often free shipping. I have found they usually even beat Rock Auto prices . . . and you don't get raped on shipping like at Rock Auto.

Then, if it ain't right, you can return to the local store for a full refund.

Well.... Maybe. Maybe not.

I needed a motor mount for my Cobalt. Rock Auto had just one brand name listed, "Anchor". It was only $54 so I ordered it. Unfortunately, it didn't fit. Evidently my Cobalt has a different bolt pattern for the mounts used for just a very short time in 2006. So I returned it and decided to buy locally. Turns out, the "Anchor" brand was all I could get locally too. Autozone wanted $99. Advance wanted something like $138. Pep Boys wanted a staggering $240. All for the same part number, which I was not sure would fit anyway or if the one I got from Rock Auto was a fluke.

Eventually I called Crateenginedepot .com (who is a forum sponsor, shameless plug) and they got my an actual AC Delco motor mount for just $79.
