Thumbs up killer vender

I ordered a front sway bar last Sunday- Davw e-mailed me back in minutes. It arrived in three days. My second order from them. I have purchased all kinds of things on line, this is the best service I have ever had. I would not hesitate to buy anything from them, the prices are the absolute bottom and service amazing. i only wish they carried more stuff to spend my money on.

I agree with ugly.. Oakos is a great place to do business with.

I ordered some Samco Hoses from them and I received them quite quickly.
Dave is great at customer service; he's friendly, replies quickly to emails, personal, and really cares if you are satisfied. I would definitely recommend them, I will probably buy some suspension stuff from them later.

Oh yeah and the hoses are cool..They look nice in the engine bay and flow better than the stock, "ribbed for your displeasure" hoses.

Thanks Oakos

Thumbs up

I ordered a RSTB from Oakos, and couldn't be happier with this vendor. The price was great, their online ordering system is quick and easy, I got a personal message that the part was shipped the same day, and it arrived about 3 days later. I only wish that they had a larger selection, I won't hesitate to order from them again whenever I need something that they carry.

ordered a front and rear sway on Friday, and recieved it today, Monday, and I'm in Hawaii.

Regular mail doesnt even travel that fast here.

Very polite on the phone, easy to talk to, and also very helpful. David didnt mind the 100 questions I had to ask him. He answered them all honestly, and promptly.

I highly recommend this vendor!!

Default Absolutely the best!

I just ordered a couple of items from David at Oakos while in Oklahoma City for school. He is the very best that I have ordered from! He is very congenial and professional while on the phone and responds with emails nearly immediately.
I ordered a Samco hose set one Thursday (about 3 weeks ago) and my roommate called and said it came in on the following Monday. I then ordered a Kartboy short shifter/bushings combo on the Thursday before I left and just got it yesterday (Monday) when I got back. You can't ask for faster shipping!
And finally, his prices are totally great! If I want or need anything for my WRX and he has it, he's gonna get my order. I defintely recommend Oakos Automotive to anyone and everyone.

Ordered speed bleeders, received them within a few days, ran into some problems and after about 4 emails I was able to get everything working well. Very helpful, I broke one of my speed bleeders and I got a replacement sent out to me right away. Excellent customer service. Thanks again

Oakes provides some of the best customer service of any vendor on this forum. I ordered my heavy duty sway-bar mounts from him and was incredibly pleased with the service.

Just got my Kartboy short shifter/bushings from Oakos. It took less than 24 hours from the time I submitted the order on their site to the time the shifter showed up. Unbelievable service!

That said, one small issue. Seems that shipping was free, which is always great, but that messed up the site's shipping tracker. Had to call and sort it out. No big deal though.

Again, great service and highly recommended!

wow, i think this is the first time i've ever seen a vendor which got nothing but great reviews....as i have one as well, the parts were shipped out so quickly that it seems as though my order, which was placed in the morning, arrived the same day at nite when i got home from work.....couldn't ask for more from a vendor, also excellent price to match

has anyone used their manuel boost controller? i haven't heard anything bout it, and was interested
