Not to worry, I change my oil every 4 months because I drive so little. I live 2 miles from work.

I am running Bosch, front and rear. Both were a good deal cheaper then the Denso units at the part store. Passed CA smog (with Walker and Magniflow cats). I don't disagree that the Denso products are probably better, but this has all worked for me for the last 30k miles/2.5 years.

Does anyone have any experience with the cheaper alternatives? Where are the corners being cut on the 40-65 dollar sensors?

Donít get me wrong, Iím the first to say buy quality. But letís face facts. These 3rd Gens arenít getting any younger, and living in the northeast does help them either.

Iíve recently sunk a bit of coin into mine in the form of brakes, exhaust, lower ball joints, outer tie rods, oem rack and pinion (whole other story), valve cover gaskets, tires and finally stainless steel rocker panels. I would actually say Iíve invested more than the truck is worth.

Another 125-150 is going to be tough to swallow.

Sorry for the long post.

Scott
I have a set (for CA emissions( with 102k miles that were still good (no error codes) when I replaced them. You can have them for the few dollars it costs to ship them to you.
