buying glow plugs- need help

I have seen a set of glow plugs on e-bay from wellman automotive, they say that they have duel coils in them to heat up faster and stay hotter longer.
my question is do i trust them or are they like the bosch glow plugs.

any input would be welcome

Just buy the Motorcraft ZD-11's from the dealership.

That is going to be your best bet.

The ZD-11's are made by Beru, you don't have to go to the dealer to get them either!! Places like AZ, OReilly's and other chain auto stores sell them. Don't buy anything else but Beru's, especially the Bosch. I sure wouldn't trust this dude on Ebay!!
I found out last week that the price on GP's has gone way up. The days of $12 each are long gone, the dealer is wanting $18 a piece now. I have seen the ZD-11's on Ebay at decent prices. There was a set last week that went for $60 for all 8, to bad I missed them.

I fourth the motorcrafts.Cheapest place I found is powerstrokeshop.com There $9.99 a piece there.I needed the truck so I had to get them at the local dealer and got them down from the $18 a piece to $13 a piece but thats still too much to me.
