Mevotech Control Arms?

Im up in Ont,Canada and costs from the States are crazy with the Extra Duty,Taxes,Freight and Exchange on the dollar. Need new Control arms,Tie rods ect.
Have local supplier that has Mevotech Supreme in stock. Ive never put anything on the car except Genuine Porsche product but the prices are getting crazy. Whats your take on this this manufacturer, It dosent appear to be German. Thx for any advise.

It looks OK to me it's still coming in from the US so if it ships courier you will still be hit with Exchange and broker fees. Get it shipped to a ship it shop close to where you live in Canada and go pick them up yourself, most of these companies don't charge shipping to US address. That way you won't get hit by broker fees and you will just have to pay the HST when you import them.

TRW is the OE supplier for the rear track arms, at the least.
