novak adapters vs. advance

im just curious to yalls preference on these two companies. I like novak b/c of the phone conversation and help that i got from them. But now im wanting to order something and their site is down, or maybe im going to the wrong address.

Well i take a look at advance adapters page, and right off the page is clutered and there is no phone contact that i can find...im sure there is but i cant' find it. Whats yalls preference as far as quality parts OTHER THAN T/CASES for advance...im looking to get motor mounts...should i go with advance or novak. Novak shows better pictures of their parts and i can see clearly what i will be dealing with. Advance adapters pictures don't show up. Any help with which to go on for motor mounts??

....

Depends upon what you are trying to adapt.

I've dealt with AA in the past and they put out a COMPLETE adapter kit. None of the "go figure out what bolts you need" type crap I got from another company. The fit/visual quality was top notch for me.

The biggest downside with AA is their inability to do any custom stuff. Even taking one of their shafts or gears and giving it a different spline count Sad part of that is they have the gear cutting equipment in house.

The other downside with AA is the fact it is cheaper to go to ANY other company to buy their stuff. For example, I need to get an adapter. From them it will cost $300ish. Through a distributor, it will cost $260ish. So what I've been forced to do in the past is email AA for price and part numbers and then talk to a distributor

Novak was willing to custom cut me a shaft. They were also prompt about replying to an email about the shaft

I have an AA trany/tcase adapter and it is a nice part. I actually got it through a vendor because of a mistake by both partys (them and me) and I got it for a cheaper price, but if I was going to do it again I would spend the money to buy there adapter first since it is a quality part and they were helpfull when I needed to call the tech department. As for the other I don't have a clue about them.

Last time i was in AA, I was looking into putting an atlas into my daily driver after busting up my 231. After talking with them, they told me NOT to buy an atlas, as it wouldnt work as well in my application.
Any company who works to help find the best solution to my problem, even if they wont make money on it (and very easily could) gets my vote.

I am using Novak and AA products in my rig. It really depends what parts you're looking for. If given the choice, and products are equal, I'd choose Novak every time.
