Need new control arms, will replace along with new tires.

Looking for an alternative to OE, perhaps ipd's Meyle HD control arms?

I'm a little weirded out that they cost significantly less than Volvo OE, go figure...

I used the meyle HD arms, made in Austria. They seem very good, no issues, and very affordable.
Yes the Meyle. I've found some very mixed reviews just surfing Meyle, although the HD designation seems to mean parts that are pretty good. Notice any differences in driving/steering?

My original control arms lasted 220k miles. At that point I switched to Doorman control arms (what was easily available), and they've been fine. Next time around, I'll go with the iPD HD control arms, though.

Yeah I'm leaning towards trying the Meyle HD. Just freaked out about how much cheaper they are. Looking for better parts, not to save a few bucks.

Go Prep!
