Currently replacing the guides and tengioner's on a 2004 BA XR8, where is the best place to buy the replacement parts?

Have been looking at eBay US, lots of stuff for Lincon's/Cobra's. Are these motors the same as ours? If so the parts are alot cheaper then my local rip off ford dealer.

I didn't buy the parts....I was handed the XR8 Ute and a box of parts, and asked to fit them.
