Anyone got experience with these aftermarket suspension parts? Front camber arms from £12 each seems really cheap but it says they have a 2year warranty so im not sure if i should try them.

They arent well known brands to me but they do have known brands like blueprint and delphi but are wanting £40 each so its a big difference if they're pretty much the same

Used auto doc before with no issues, have some decent stuff at decent prices. But must be cheap for a reason? I'd try go with a half decent brand name you've heard of. Wouldn't want to run it long term though or track etc.

thats what i thought but at £12 each its hard to resist trying them, my guess is the quality of ball joints and rubber bushes are worse but for a daily driver i might jusk risk a pair

anyone got experience with these really cheap parts?

The only time I've had experience with these really cheap part was when my old Nissan Micra needed new front lower control arms, cost about £30 each. They were ok for the duration of being fitted, 3 years before the car was scrapped. Got to remember that all the R&D have been done, market is now saturated with mass produced parts, possibly materials will be of a lower standard than Honda OEM. Hence they can be sold so cheap. If you are going to be hammering the car on corners and putting strain on the suspension components then I would look something more OE - https://japserviceparts.co.uk/products/civic/honda-civic-ek-series-96-00/steering-and-suspension.html#page=1

And plus how many people are actually buying things like these for EK's these days? Will be a lot of New, Unsold stock out there too I'll bet.

Personally, I would stick to something like Febi Bilstein or Blueprint when it comes to motorfactor parts.
