    New bottom arms

    In need of a new set of bottom arms for the G and was looking on ebay but they dont seem to be branded i.e delphi etc.

    Should i stay clear of them or are they just as good as any others?

    heres a link to the ones i found.

    why would you go for these when genuine vauxhall one's are only £42.98 on trade club. some of the ebay ones are weak and of poor quality pattern make

    Strange, when I asked the same question a few weeks ago I was told the eBay ones were fine and that nobody knew of any problems from those using them...

    it'll be each!

    sod that!! if ur bothered about getting GM then you would surely buy the correct ZLET specific ones which are stupidly expensive!

    i just have pattern ones albeit with poly bushes and the only problem ive seen is that they tend to rust easier....not really a problem when having been coated with shitloads of paint
