Excellent parts
Bought these control arms for my 2010 sierra. They were a perfect fit! Quality seems as good as OEM for less than half the price. I was very sceptical being that they are not a name brand but i am very happy with my purchase!

Fast shipping and great service
Parts i ordered came within 2 days which is great and they are good reliable parts. I had an issue with a balljoint fitting my vehicle and they immediately fixed the problem and sent out an additional set which was outstanding. Would refer to everyone i know and i will continue to purchase parts from here, you can get the parts at about half the price than you local auto parts store and they are just as reliable!

Good Product. Good Fit
Product is good so far. Slightly heavier than OE parts. Ball Joints come pre-greased and nothing tells you this on instructions.

2008 Chevy silverado 1500 crew cab ltz
Shipping was much quicker than expected. The parts seem to be the same quality as any other manufacturer at a much better price. This is my first 1aauto purchase due to the fact that in the past I needed parts the same day but I have used the instructional videos for numerous applications. Very credible company and every part that I need that doesn’t have to be replaced the same day it goes out will be from 1aauto in the future.
