Find new replacement parts for different years of Chevy Silverado trucks on sites such as JCWhitney.com, AutoTruckTroys.com and Amazon.com. A consumer looking to save money should also look on sites such as Craigslist.org and eBay.com, though these sites don't offer the same guarantees that new parts retailers do.
The first thing a buyer needs to do when shopping for replacement Chevy Silverado parts online is to decide whether to purchase the part new or used. New parts are often more reliable, and their retailers offer return and exchange programs, though the price is typically higher. Used parts can carry some risk, depending on how heavily the part was used, but come at a much cheaper price. In some cases, such as a buyer who is looking for a specific part for an older Chevy Silverado, there may not be a choice, as Chevy, in common with many manufacturers, discontinues making older parts after a certain period.
When shopping for used parts on a site such as eBay, make sure that the part in question is compatible with the Chevy Silverado in question before making the purchase. Additionally, it's important to read the seller's feedback to look out for any warning signs such as frequent complaints about the sale of faulty parts.
