Where to buy replacement screen?

Hello,
I dropped my phone a whopping 2 ft and the screen no longer works. Apple told me its junk so I figure since I'm not going to spend 200 to replace it, I may as well try to fix it myself for around half that since people around town want the same amount for parts + labor. Which I take to me the part proably costs them around half of the price they're charging. I've looked into what the repair involves. My question is where can I get quality parts? I've read good things about iFixit: http://www.ifixit.com/iPhone-Parts/i...mbly/IF115-000 . Does anyone with some experience have any recommendations? The screen was pretty much the most important feature of this phone to me.

ifixit is expensive - but its legit parts. Maybe some other people have experience from other 3rd party sellers.

Thanks! I was also looking at applepartsstore.com which is a lot cheaper and claims the parts are OEM.

There website gives no info about company location, phone numbers, etc. I wouldn't deal with them.
