Yea, that can be tough on any site. If you don't know the number, you're gonna have to do some guessing. And we don't stock 300 part numbers, I think it's closer to 30-50,000 numbers and millions of pieces. It's a lot to sift through. Even the Vehicles category is pushing 500-600 different part numbers for kits. It's the utter mass of it all, that puts up a LOT of results.

You can always order with confidence from Stormer.

Don't expect any graphics changes soon. everything changes around and underneath it. More categorys, more and better ways to sift results, a lot of behind the scenes things to help your experience and shopping results. Graphics and extra things slow the site. We try to keep it as lean as possible. There's only so much bandwith to go around and we have to weigh every possible change against how it's going to fill the pipe. It's a trade off.

One question tho, is the shipping overseas good ? ( fast, slow, cheap, expensive)
Our overseas regulars will tell you that they tend to like the way we do it. Rather than throw up a high (one price covers everybody) shipping price, we do them one at a time, and by hand. There is a spot on the checkout process for international customers where you have two options. Have us package and select the best method for you, or you can submit the order and put it on hold pending a shipping quote. We do not process or charge your account until you agree to the shipping charges. If we don't hear from you, the order automatically cancels in 7 days. People seem to like that method, saves them money on shipping. Our shipping department is pretty handy at it. And they've had about 30 years to find methods that work the best and ship the cheapest.

And the dimensions that are allowed to ship to each country change all the time. It's quite interesting.

I will add, that we can appreciate it when people ask, but we are not allowed by law to alter or change the required value of an international shipment to a lower dollar value. Also, you cannot insure a $100 package for $900. You are not allowed to insure for more than the declared value. When that $1000 worth of stuff is lost... you get the declared value of $100 Just something to keep in mind.
