Fatrodders stainless tubular control arms???

Just wondering if anybody has personally seen or installed their stainless steel tubular upper and lower control arm set that they are selling on eBay? Any feedback on the company itself?
Thanks - Karl.

I would be afraid to buy from him ... he has over a dozen bad feedbacks on eBay in the past month alone ...

It seems kinda weird to make control arms out of stainless because the process of making stainless makes the steel weaker. Maybe it is still strong enough for the A arms. I would not want to ramp a speed bump and loose my front clip! Unless thats what I intended to do!

I've bought a few things from him. Only had one problem in 3 orders. My package came, and something was missing. I called them, and they had forgotten to inform me that the item was out of stock and they had to order more. My part was at my door 2 days later.

I cant vouch for the arms themselves, but I'd probably go for some chrome arms instead, or get mine chromed. Less upkeep.

for the volume this guy is selling if its a good deal, I'd try him, but I would also use my credit card to pay for the item (through PP) just to be on the safe side, PP wont do squat for you but your credit card company will, if it doesnt show up or if its substandard quality and they dont want to fix the issue, dispute the charge with your CC, you CC works for you, PP does not.

Kruzin,

I have ordered quite a few items from Fat Rodder in the past. Most recent was in December '05.

No problems whatsoever. Good prices with fast and reasonable S&H. Good communication via eMail with shipment tracking info.

Sorry that I can't help you anything more recent, but I do keep them on my "Favorite Sellers" list.

Good Luck!!
