Im going to do the timing belt pully's, seals,water pump etc on my99 forester. How good are these kits on ebay? It will cost me over $400 or more for all OEM parts when i can get it them for half the price on ebay.. I would prefer OEM but i cant afford it and im approaching the 100k mark and need to get this done.. I can also get the gates timing belt combo locally but it's $279 my cost without seals...

The two ebay kits I have seen, the idler pulleys were single row bearings VS OEM being double row. Single row = shorter life. Keeping in mind that these pulleys do not give much if any warning before failing.

Well i'll check the pulleys first maybe there still good and i'll leave them. I just ordered everything so i'll see how good the kit is when it comes in... Thanks for the reply..
