White Box Suspension Parts?

Ordered front end parts through the site. Got my tie rods in the following boxes...





What's the deal with white box MB parts?

The drag link was Moog, which I was glad to see, but it was made in Turkey. Bummer.

Anyway, any ideas?

I've seen that emblem before.

I think it was on Karyln made parts. I suppose whomever you bought it from just reboxed the part...

the underside of the tie rod balljoints was marked with a K.

Is Karlyn good? OEM? Not familiar.

Hmmm. That's good to know. Why don't they prominently advertise "made in USA" instead of making their packaging look so...Oriental? Especially when you see the "German Engineering, but we couldn't afford to build it there" language.

Stuuuuuupid.
