Thanks for the links, I've looked at all of them. Pelicanparts has my mounts for $21 (febi) or $28 (lemforder).. no one comes remotly close to this anywhere... autopartsway.ca has lemforder mounts for $32 which is reasonable but it will take about 3-5 days to get to my door. I was hoping to find someone in TO that can get it by tomorrow.

So far no one has them or its $55 for one mount

There's a part network in Canada called Auto Sense. Any shop which is affiliated with them has prices which generally beat autopartsway.

you'll have to do some sleuthing...
go here http://www.modernsales.ca/store_finder.html and find a pin close to you. Cross-check with google maps to find auto parts stores that are close to the pins.

It's a little crude, but it works. I found one close to me that way.

I called them.

Mounts : they $55 vs apw $32
AC tensioner: they $102 vs apw $75

Apw is still much cheaper... this just shows how much of a mark up everyone is actually paying. I know apw has less expenses to run the business as its just a website, but I doubt it costs that much more, especially when many places install/fix as well at their location.

Ended up using pelicanparts.

Saved over $100 on strut mounts/ac tensioner/wp pulley.

I have a friend that crosses the border on weekly basis. He'll pick it up for me. So no tax and no need to drive to pick up.

The downside is I wont get it till next week.
