    Default Control Arms at this price, any good or stay away?

    Hi all, my back wheel knocks when I wobble it from 12 o'clock and it feels unstable going around corners on uneven surfaces.
    Are these any good or too cheap = rubbish? Anyone here fitted them?

    I've also noticed my rear springs are snapped, should I replace there first?
    Cheers bill

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    No experience either way I'm afraid, but can tell you they are a ***** to fit and I wouldn't want to have to do it too often. Took Dean and I an hour to do mine with the use of a ramp at Autowerx.

    I bought mine from eurocarparts for £34 each and that was the cheapest I could find on line from reputable dealers, £26.99 for two sounds too good to be true to be honest (IMHO).
