I need a new steering rod end RE46000 for our 5300. My dealer's price is $340 for the new #SJ16769. The price from greenfarmparts.com is $145 which they state is OEM. The price I get from car quest is $89 for an aftermarket of course.
I only have 2 tractors here to deal with but several other green golf/turf equipment and I have a couple general questions about green aftermarket parts.
1) buying OEM parts from greenfarmparts.com for less than 1/2 price sounds too good to be true. How can this be?
2) Any other thoughts on aftermarket parts in general?
