    All-Data
    some guys are still using Chilton but All Data has great info to assist in the repair and their parts prices seem to be more accurate.

    As close to "Normal" as I can get...

    I have an estimating program that integrates NAPA parts and Mitchell labor. I also use Mitchell On Demand that includes the labor guide. I believe Mitchell and Alldata are real close on the labor guide. If all you are after is a labor guide the NAPA program is the least expensive and it allows me to look up parts, check my local store & DC inventory and save quotes. Saves a lot of time calling the parts store.

    80% of what I work on are gm products. (fleet ) I currently have gm tis, but the ford share is increasing. next year when it expires I am most likely going with alldata. looking at mitchells I like it the best but its a software lease. chiltons seems to fit me the best for now, anybody using it ? thoughts?
