Tie Rods...e-Bay item, too cheap???

IIRC this guy has screwed several people on here.

Use one of the more popular places. Phil, ********, buymbparts. They offer good customer serivce and if you order enough stuff, free shipping.

You cant go wrong.

Mercedes991 moves a lot of parts and often makes mistakes. I bought a part from them 2 years ago that never got sent, and I had to call them over and over to get action. I eventually did get the part, but it was NOT worth the hassle.

Check at reputable sites but don't skimp out. Because of the replacement time on this part I would suggest sticking with OEM(Lemforder).

They are Ocap, I queston the quality of such parts.

If its a car you plan on keeping spring for Lemforder, or one of the better brands.

If you can always buy Lemforder suspension parts, they make the best and are OE.
