    I'm about to order some new front arms. TBH, because I'm cycling everywhere now my mileage is tiny, I'll be lucky to do over 3k this year. I've also noticed a recent increase in aftermarket parts prices, even Febi/TRW etc seem to have gone up loads.

    I've noticed on AD some cheaper brands, Riddex, Topran, Spidan, ABS etc. Are these really bad? I doubt I'd need more than 15k out of them TBH, or would their fittment totally wreck the drive? Does anyone know of a good lower end aftermarker brand they've had a good experience with?

    Thanks

    Stick with a decent brand. Cheap ones can screw wheel alignment and end up costing more.
