Parts appeared to be good quality.
Welds looked good. Quality matched the OEM parts. Zero issues with installation. I only gave 4 stars because only time will tell how they hold up. I will continue to purchase from 1A.

Great parts Great price!!
The parts fit great. Quality parts. Need a press to get ball joints out, or take to shop to have pressed out. Other than that the parts bolt right in.

Great parts, bad packaging
When I received the parts, the original box they were shipped in was busted wide open and was apparently reboxed by the carrier and was missing 1 ball joint. I called 1A Auto and the lady I talked to got another ball joint shipped to me in time to do the work that weekend. The parts were great and fit perfectly. 1A Auto needs to re-evaluate how they box large heavy parts like 2 control arms and 2 ball joints.
