Gee: If you need them asap, they do list OEM set for a couple hundred more 600 hundred some thing which is a good deal for OEM. The NAS ones sold out fast once we discovered them! Hope he has ordered at least a hundred sets for all of us who need them;-) I will give my set a good test but don't think I'll live long enough to put another 236k on the old girl, but am planning a few long road trips to go on. She is now my joy ride rather than daily ride. Am buying a set of the rear upper NAS arms also. Halon: if we get 80k out of them that is better than some moog parts I have purchased.

If you get 80k out of them yes I'd say that's absolutely a good value. Coming from a respected (albeit lesser known) brand like NAS/Sankei I think gives these a much higher level of initial buyer comfort over the no name Chinese ones. I think these will prove to be a good alternative to actual oem toyota, but only time will tell for sure.

I brought up companies like Moog and Dorman because they are aftermarket oem manufacturers that are already well known for providing quality parts. I'm sure you can find a critic for those brands (or any brand) but in general they are well known brands known to generally make quality aftermarket oem parts. And if they came out with a version I think people would have comfort from a buyers perspective that they're getting a part from a well known manufacturer that is familiar and can be trusted it won't be made from scrap pot metal and snap while on a cloverleaf. The Chinese ones do not offer that initial buyer comfort level, but the NAS ones do. So I'm glad to see a known aftermarket oem company stepping up here, and I hope more do and we can start shopping them from a number of different respected aftermarket oem brands just like we can currently for say front upper arms off Rock Auto.

I still have never seen the listing but I definitely need to get a set. My control arms and bushings look so bad.

I did see the OEM set but I will hold out for now since it's not my daily and hopefully I should get many miles from them.

Thanks
