I would suggest you try Ebay, over the years of building and repairing cars I have found it to be a great source of used parts, only one caution check the feedback score of the seller before you bid or commit to buy.

What kind of service at 120000 miles

All of the following:
  1. Change all fluids including coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid, transmission fluid, and crankcase oil. I would strongly recommend increasing the viscosity of your crankcase oil at this point, and use higher viscosity oil from now on. Change the oil every 3000 miles from now on as well.
  2. Replace oil filter and transmission filter.
  3. OVER-LUBRICATE (really) all lubrication points on the suspension, pushing out and wiping off as much old grease as you can. Inspect all bushings for signs of cracking, wear, or chapping.
  4. Perform a MAJOR TUNE-UP, replacing spark plugs, wires, and coil packs.
  5. Check all brake systems for signs of wear and proper operation.
  6. Re-pack all wheel bearings, inspecting them for excessive wear or failure.
  7. Check front tires for uneven wear. Perform a front-end alignment if there is any uneven wear or cupping on the front tires.
  8. Rotate tires, inspecting wheels for cracks or other damage.
  9. Check all lights and signals for proper operation and full illumination.
  10. Use penetrating oil on the battery connections to eliminate and prevent oxidation of the terminals.
  11. Lubricate all power window mechanisms, door latches, door hinges, and power seat mechanisms.
  12. Lubricate hood release, trunk release, and any other hinges in the vehicle.
  13. Use electric-safe penetrating oil (such as WD-40) on all switches, wiping off excess lubricant.
  14. Go a little crazy with the penetrating oil on anything that moves or pivots, again wiping off any excess.
  15. Tighten anything loose on the interior.
  16. Clean the throttle body using OXYGEN SENSOR SAFE throttle body cleaner (if you're unfamiliar with the correct procedure, look it up or ask me).
  17. Replace the fuel filter.
  18. Add a bottle of FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER to the tank. Don't add any more fuel until the tank is nearly empty.
  19. Check the operation of the shocks/struts, and replace as necessary.
  20. Check for engine codes and correct any identified errors.
That should keep you busy for awhile :) It's worth it.

97 Cadillac Delegance Front end noise , dissapears when going into right hand turn then returns when straightening out. Tires recently rotated and balanced , tire that was on right front had wear pattern...

I would be checking out the wheel bearings for the problem. I would also be checking the front suspension for worn ball joints and steering end joints. Tyre wear patterns indicate unbalance-wheel alignment-shock absorbers and front end wear. I refuse to rotate tyres for several reasons Radial tyres when developing a wear pattern will retain that wear pattern even if placed on a trailer--Wear patterns show a fault for that wheel and tells which wheel and what needs to be done to repair it and lastly tyres wear in pairs so if you have a front wheel drive car why replace 4 tyres when the need is to replace only 2 front ones. Saves about 50% of the cost of tyres. The rotation theory came about from cross ply tyres and does not apply to radials except for tyre dealers profits

Brakes are going to the floor most of the way checked rear brakes and they are still good bleed them and problem still there

Normally when the brake pedal goes almos to the floor it is an indication of low brake fluid. Low brake fluid is an indication that front and/or rear brakes are wearing. As the brake pads wear down more brake fluid will be required in the wheel cylinders or calipers. Hint, the front brakes usually wear much faster than the rear due to the fact that the fronts due a much greater braking function that the rear. Check the front pads. Don't let them get down to the metal scraping metal stage before you change them out. This causes unnessary damage to the rotors. Look at your master cylinder on the firewall under the hood in front of the steering wheel. If the fluid level is belowhte "max" mark add fluid. Low fliud should also show as a red "brake" light on your dash, but not always.

My front tires are showing wear, and they toe out when in reverse

Be sure to have tires rotated every 5000-6000-miles. Walmart is good for that.
Outside wear is normal for fronts from the turns at higher speeds.
When tierod ends were replaced it is advisable to get front end aligned. Its not impossible to replace with minimum change but if settings were done with worn parts, new parts will change it.

How to repalce the battery

This is simple to do once you find the battery. Remove the rear seat (pull up on the front of it to release) to expose the battery. Then remove the Negative terminal followed by the Positive terminal. Finally remove battery hold down bolt to free the battery. ALWAYS wears eye protection when working on/near/with the battery.

Note- The seat belt configuration in the seat before removing... don't forget the seat belts when installing.

Use battery terminal protector on the terminals. Thoroughly inspect the terminals for signs of corrosion. Replace as necessary.
