The dash is coming out, need parts buying advice.
 
Ive gotta yank the dash out to replace my evaporator core. My thought was to go ahead and do the heater core while I'm in there.

Rock auto has SPECTRA PREMIUM parts, $90 for the evap, $45 for the heater. This is insanely cheap compared to everywhere else I've looked.

Who is the oem mfgr for these parts?

Why are dealer and parts store prices $250-350 apiece for these?

Is SPECTRA something I should avoid, ie. poor quality/fitment?

When replacing the evap, should I buy the drier/accumulator/expansion valve as well? Or is that only a concern after compressor failure? (i know, tech question)

Anyone have experience or advice to share on these parts?

i know others have had luck with rock auto, but i refuse to buy from them again. i ordered from them 3 times and got the wrong part all three times. the reason for the price difference is that their parts are made in china or korea vs usa or canada.
