Has anyone used the upper control arms being sold on Ebay by an individual/company in Florida? They ar said to be manufactured by Ocap/Europe, are priced about 1/3 of other control arms I've seen for sale elsewhere. Are they any good?

I would never recommend aftermarket replacement parts for a Mercedes. Especially not on and S Class. On occasion, less-than-admirable extended warranty companies will send their own aftermarket replacement parts in the hopes of cutting their costs. I have never once left these parts on the car, as not once has their substitution fixed the problem to my satisfaction. In the end, they pay labor twice and end up buying the real deal. Mind you, this has been limited more to steering gears, transfer cases and other larger parts, but I can't say I encourage the use of such parts. It's possible they may work for you, although I imagine the probability is quite low. If you do end up going with them , I would appreciate your feedback.
