no clue. all you can do is double check their feedback and use paypal so if there are problems, you have a better chance of getting your money back. good luck.

My credo
If you can't go through it or around it, then go over it.
the problem with feedback is .............. you leave the feedback after the kit arrives and you have checked to make sure all the parts are there.

you cannot leave feedback 6 months from now when this kit fails so you still have no idea if this is a well built kit.

I put new fuel injectors in the diesel chevy back in June. I have put about 3000 miles on them and I paid $160 for remanned high pop injectors. I left positive feed back because the guy was great to deal with, they showed up before the promised time. he also included the install kit with them. I now have a cylinder full of diesel and a hydrolocked engine because one of my freshly remanned injectors failed.

moral of the story.

watch what you buy off ebay and keep an eye on those parts..... a suspension failure at say 70 mph would suck ass.

Franly, I'd rather deal with a local parts store so that you can actually deal with somebody face to face if there's an issue.

Dont buy low quality suspension parts...you'll just be replacing it next year. I recommend moog chassis parts as they are great quality parts and come with a lifetime warranty.

I ordered a bunch of parts for an escort from one of those guys on ebay...

what was pictured was generic made in china parts.

what actually came was American made TRW parts.

I left glowing feedback...

Suspension parts are NOT a good place to save money. Your saftey is at stake.
Cheap seat cover or grile shell? No big deal if fails on you, but if a weld or bolt in the control arm fails, you're likely to be going for one hell of a ride!

TRW is a federal mogul brand...same people that make moog, but at a lower price.

If it was TRW, then you would have found a good deal, but looking at the item description it states that it is XCP and Coni-seal brand with a one year warranty. Usually the cheap, low quality parts come with a one year warranty. I would still get it elsewhere...

I also got my stock height 4.0 4x4 Coils from a guy on ebay

IT was $40/pr SHIPPED and I told everyone on TRS about it
and nobody bought any I bought TWO sets.

They were the EXACT correct P/N and were still sealed in their
Norris/McQuay boxes.

The D35 Rotors I bought for my truck for $35 for the PAIR
arrived and were Bosch rotors...

There is a lot of junk out there, but there is also good stuff that really
is people dumping surplus or overstocked parts.

The thing I'm waiting for is the price on EBC pads for the 1995-03 trucks to drop.

EBC-Green rates a "So what?"

EBC Red or Yellow will get my "Buy-It-Now" finger itching...
