How did you come out with your transmission/axle issue?

Was the car actually totaled? Looks like lower fascia damage but, the panels appear to still be aligned like the frame could be okay.

The real difference often is some small no name brands will deal with who ever is cheapest and just get what ever is sent to them.

..greatest issues are with cheap no name knock off copies of things that can vary in quality.



Thanks, the above is more what I mean. Avoiding them is difficult.
There used to be names you could trust, and they were mainly made in America. I agree it is changing.

Yes my point was a Moog part made in China can and will be as good as anything here. Just as a other name brand items. But there always is some cheap knock off some where that is going to be junk to. It is just to the point you just can't write off parts as junk on a general made in China claim.

To be honest the last set of American rotors I had were screwed up on the balance as the weight came lose and was bouncing around inside it.

its all relative to the companies qc over at the plant some don't care and let them get away with murder and others keep close tabs on the production quality.

Did you buy the car back from them to harvest parts for your next Fiero?
