I'm getting ready to go to MFEST in 2 weeks, driving from Florida. Mine aren't bad, but would like to have back ups in the car just in case anything happens on my trip out there. I just replaced my cooling system, power steering hoses, diff mounts/seals, clutch, tires, and all fluids. Don't want to drop another grand on 2 parts if I don't need them at the moment so if anyone has them used that I can buy or borrow please let me know. Thanks.

No I meant just to carry as spares, maybe I'm wrong here but i don't recall these items as being a big wear item on our cars. A spare tire/wheel sure, oil, fuses, pump replay OK but I understand you want to be cautious on a long trip.

Well I have 115k miles with original parts. I'm also going to track the car and have heard the pumps going out sometimes.

Good idea. The parts aren't generally readily available as if you had a Mustang. I got 80k out of my original alternator and maybe 50-60k from the steering pump. I think the seal failed but it was under warranty.

Check the local pick and pulls?
