All the parts in the junk yard, well the ones that were in an accident and then totaled, all drove themselves to the spot the accident. I’ve had better luck with good, used parts from the parts yard, then parts from autozone..
I wouldn’t hesitate, and haven’t, when purchased parts from the yard and installed them on my cars. For example, how many 8.8 swaps are being done all the time to S10s, mustangs, etc that are going 9s in the quarter with those scary used junk yard axles and junk yard brakes… cringe worthy :sarcasm:

If you're buying anything from AutoZone besides cleaning supplies, fluids and other liquids that may come in a spray bottle, your just setting yourself up to be aggravated, IMO.
