Thumbs down I hate buying online

Ok so i ordered some ford racing 9mm spark plug wires from gefracing and they finally got here today... but of course they were the wrong size. I specifically ordered them for my year. part numbers match and everything but somehow i end up getting the wrong ones. wires 5 and 6 are suppose to be short wires but the ones i got are really long, and it's the opposite of what they should be for the other wires. I'm so pissed off since i was looking forward to putting them in after a long *** day at work.

So i called them but with my luck the parts department closed 15 minutes earlier and i have to wait till tomorrow. I know people make mistakes but now i probably have to pay to ship them the ones i have and wait over a week to get the right ones. it's frustrating...

anyone know if i can exchange them at a regular Ford dealership?

Re: I hate buying online

so today I called up gefracing to figure out what happened with the correct spark plug wires they were suppose to send me and got the run around. I was transferred 12 times in 20 minutes. I went through all of that **** and waiting to find out they don't even have wires for 99-00. It's on their website in two different places that they sell those wires. so now i have to wait for UPS to pick up the wrong ones from me so i can get credited when they get to georgia. I'm so pissed off right now!! i was going to buy several other things from them but not now. i'm so frustrated and had to get this out.......sorry i know nobody wants to hear this but whatever.....

Re: I hate buying online

You do know you can swap sides with the wires right??? If you look at the super six cars wiring they are bass ackwards. The set you have will work you just have to swap out sides and not pay attention to the numbers on the wires.

great...... that sucks because i was under the impression that you have to connect the same numbers and to not cross them. the wires i got were for a 98. I'm not taking any chances and shorting something out. i already have a crap load of problems eclectrically so i'm just going to wait till i get my money back so i can buy the right ones.
I can't wait untill school starts so i can get my automotive certs and have more experience with everything.

I don't know if he has a GT or not...I know no v6 up till 05 has coil on plug. I actually didn't realize GT's had that, I knew the 05 does. Only problem is figuring out which one is messed up when they start going out without paying hte 75 dollars at ford.

My old 2000 GT had, and my current cobra has coil on plug. I believe the 99s did as well since they were the same as the 00.
