    Default 2007 Speed3 front lower control arms

    Anybody have experience with aftermarket front lower control arms? These are cheap but wondering the quality....https://www.ebay.com/itm/Suspension-...JZ5lRv&vxp=mtr

    Also on the rock auto page I see a few diff ones...can anyone comment on the quality of the moog, acdelco or delphis compared to oem? They're a hell of a lot cheaper then OEM and if I can find similiar quality I'll go with those.

    I also need an oil cooler as Jimmy said mines leaking. Is this too good to be true? The price I mean lol. https://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-O...dYCYYo&vxp=mtr

    Thanks guys

    Go with moog from rock auto. As far as oil cooler I would suggest oem personally. You should be able to find a good used condition one locally. There’s a guy I believe in Hamilton area that parts out speeds. Jp auto or something along those lines. He has some posts on kijiji.

    Moog is usually a safe bet although some have questioned their quality as of late. Delphi is a good brand. Have bought several parts from them for several different car makes and never an issue.

    @blackspeed3

    Did you replace the control arms? do you still have the old ones? im looking for some old ones as i have whiteline bushings to put in and id rather do it on a second set to faciliate faster replacement
    Oh damn, that sucks. Oh well, I stopped reading the Speed section because according to certain people only speed owners are allowed to even look at that section.
