i purchased a set of arms off ebay for 110 + 22 shipping recently. auction said, "Great shape no bends Ball joints in great shape". seller had a 150+ rating with 100% feedback. i figured it was safe enough to buy.

i got them today, all 4 ball joint threads were hammered. i had to run my dye over the 2 upper arms and i salvaged them. both lowers are far beyond repair. the upper arm boots are seeping grease when the joint is moving back and forth.

to top it off, the "black lower arms". were HORRIBLE, chips everywhere, some rust showing. no grease fittings, no dust caps, no bushings, cant believe this shit.

as of now im leaving out seller name, im going to fight this for a refund. sorry, had to rant. ill upload some pics of the lower ball joint threads.

Did you see pics of these a-arms before you bid? If there were pics posted and they showed the damage, I'd say it's your fault. If there were pics of a-arms other than the ones you received, I'd say you got bent over. If there were no pics of the a-arms or the seller wouldn't furnish pics you shouldn't have bid. Let the buyer beware!

That's my Ebay advice for this evening!

theres a pic of the arms, kinda blurry from about 5 feet away or so. just shows 4 arms basically. not clear enough to see how shitty the black paint was. obviously not near close enough to see the ball joints damaged.

if he wont offer a refund, im going to pursue a refund through paypal for false advertisement. the arms are not as advertised, not usable in their current condition, unless i press out 2 ball joints and spend another 40+ for more :confused: not to mention two leaking boots.

i just cant believe someone would try to pass something like this off as "great condition".

I couldn't disagree with you possibly anymore..... E-bay is a GREAT place. I mean, you have those random A$$holes.. but still. I will tell you, I have got my fair share of deals on there, my $135 Blackline AC pro Nerfs... mint :thumbsup: AC blackline bumper $40 mint.... so, i think this is just one of those random things that happens,. sorry it happend to you man, hope it doesn't keep you away from ebay :)
