Are these quality parts?

I'd personally use Rockauto.com. Dorman and Moog are reputable manufacturers when it comes to our platform. If you're going to pay that price might as well go with those brands.

I'm assuming you have a 2002 TB, here is the Rockauto link... but feel free to browse around...

I see you're in Canada so shipping will eat you up a bit too... just some more options for ya... Im sure others will chime in...

I don't know about Midwest but Prime Choice, which is local to me, I can definitely confirm is cheap Chinese crap. I would buy their junk only if I'm selling the vehicle.

Unfortunately, shipping from the US to Canada and our lower dollar pretty much negates buying from the US unless you can have them shipped somewhere near the border and pick them up. Even then, it's almost not worth the trouble. Discount online retailers like RockAuto don't exist really here yet. Amazon.ca is starting to sell more stuff but auto parts are not quite there yet. Go to local parts stores (real ones, not Crappy Tire or Parts Source) and ask their prices and if they'd give the "garage" price. Some will do that, which is usually about 20% less. Some dealers do that too, although rare.

Just to add, my experience with Prime Choice are with their hubs (junk), alternators (junk), brakes (junk) and radiators (seem OK). The control arms might be OK but that would be an expensive and possibly dangerous experiment if they fail. If you still want to try them, buy them directly from them in Canada, not through eBay. Much cheaper and free shipping.

Thanks for the replies! I almost bought both of the links and figured I'd ask the more experienced peeps here. I only really need the end links and some control arm bushings but would have replaced everything for those prices. Maybe I'll just get the smaxx links and bushings. I figured itd be easier when time comes to flip and rotate the uca's if it was all new.

Thanks for the advice!

For critical stuff like that I'm very leery of ebay specials...
