Help with finding a cheaper part

Hey everyone, my stepdad and I have been fixing up a 1985 ranger (his dd) with the 2.8l carberated v6. His idle air control actuator has gone out and he has been running the truck without hte actuator plugged in. He is finally tired of getting 10 mpg's and wants to replace the part. We found the part for $138 online, however we cant find it any cheaper (our local auto zones and advance auto doesnt carry). We would really appreciate it if anyone knew of a place to find it cheaper. Here is a link to the part. Its the second picture down in the link Part number: MICS76A Thank You!

If you know there's a thread on this, then ask in that thread or send him a PM...ha. Keep it related to the OP. He is asking for help to find a part at a lesser price. I can gaurantee you he didn't make this thread to answer questions and give tips about his 4x4 conversion. Josh had every right to say that, its a public forum...Not being a dick just helping you out for future reference! Sorry for Cluttering your thread even more Israel. Like said above check Rock Auto for sure and and see if they have what you need a cheaper price.
