Default Where to buy a new o2 sensor??

Anybody know of a place online where I can purchase a o2 sensor for a 2000 rs, particularly the one just before/in front of the cat? I tried drivewire.com, but they dont have any. I was told bosch is the way to go, so thats why I really dont want to shell out 80 bucks on the OEM one the dealer has and have it f-up again because its in a random tech cat. I went to Bosch.com, and they have a list of distributors, but I went to all the ones in my area, and none of them have them yet alone can they order them. Any help would be appreciated,Thanks

If you want to be really trick, order the 1998 ford f series unit (with v8).

Its a four wire sensor, so you can run a dedicated ground for the signal wire (the stock one grounds through the exhaust).

type in keyword: "sensor"
If you can get an oe for $80 I would buy oe. The front oe sensor is usually a bit over $100.

Why do you think the Random Tech cat is destroying these sensors?

I've had a RT Cat for 6 months with no O2 sensor failures. Got a PO420 when I first installed it but the Pony Express MIL eliminator cured that.

And also since it's the sensor in front of the cat that's bad it's likely NOT the cat that's causing the problem.
The problem most likely lies somewhere between the air filter and the O2 sensor.

Front O2 sensors can eventually burn out. I had mine replaced by the dealer a few years ago. They said that many customers came to them for a replacement front O2 sensor. They also said that they couldn't figure out why O2 sensors (especially in MY00/01 Legacy and Imprezas) were burning out.
