Lemfoerder control arms

Did you mean www.blauparts.com? I have purchased
parts from them before with mixed results. The control
arms I'm replacing came from BLAUfergnugen. They
lasted about 10,000 miles before the rubber distintigrated
around the steel center bushings at the chassis ends.
Made in China? Totally pitiful if you ask me. That isn't
the first time they've sold me poor quality parts. Door
handles come to mind. A a/c dryer that didn't fit also
comes to mind. But some stuff worked. It's a crap shoot
with them in my experience. And I don't know whether
times have changed, but they used to be famous for tossing
heavy bits like brake calipers into the same box as
Euro headlights without padding and just let it all shake,
rattle and roll together via UPS Ground.

De Witt:  Have you checked out the control arms 
Blua parts is marketing?  I don't know anything 
about your specific issue, but the catalogue they 
sent me had what appeared to be aftermarket high 
quality arms.   www.bluaparts.com   I've been wrong before though!!
