Default Control arms

Anyone bought replacement control arms like these;

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FOR-HONDA...BwxOAUmM_adTkw

seems would be cheaper to buy and fit these, then to get new bushes, remove, shot blast/paint the originals?

I don't think there's any need for that reply, you'll get more help by being polite

I brought two arms off of ebay, It was off of the same company and had a phonecall a day later. They told me the arms had been machined incorrectly , The balljoint holes were incorrect on everyone they had sold so far. I opted for a refund. Lets be honest if the manufacturer cant get something basic like hole sizes correct then whats the chance of the arms actually being of a good enough quality to be safe. You only need to look online to see lots of aftermarket hub failures due to poor materials. Not worth the risk IMO

FWIW, I bought these (both sides) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FOR-HONDA...IAAOSwnTdaTOvx

Fitted, looks identical to the originals, and have been on for a year and around 1500 miles.
