This is how much Ford is really ripping you off.

Well since I work at a dodge dealer Im able to get parts at dealer cost through them so I got everything that I need to put a new clutch in (flywheel pressure plate clutch disc half shaft seals and slave cylinder) all for about 250. So thats just how much ford is really ripping you off since the list fo the flywheel is about 300

That's how they make the most of their money. Not just Ford is like that either. An 02 sensor for the Zetec Focus is over $100 list, but a Few people here work at Ford and give them to ya for around $60......I just bought 1

But it's not just Ford man, all dealers are like that everywhere......

That isn't that bad of a markup.
I could show you some really bad markups that the navy is stupid enough to pay for.

Ok, i have a couple questions regarding what you have said. Keep in mind, I work for Ford. What car do you have, an SVT as givin in your screen name? If so, what are the part numbers that you bought? You may be suprised to hear what i have to say "after" you shoot me the part numbers. If you dont mind, also give me the exact price for each please.

Some of it is that, some of it is just obtaining obsolete and not made any more parts, and a lot of it is Lockheed being greedy.

Your right, Ford shouldn't make a profit on anything they sell. I can't believe how they're ripping us off.
