Genuine Renault - bit pricey, so I looked at Delphi and Febi Bilstein thinking that they were credible manufacturers of OEM parts. Both have been bought by the Chinese and OK, it's possible that the quality is still good, but it has put me off. How do I know whether they are made any better than the stuff that gives the term 'Chinese made' a bad name?

Even Delphis quality statement simply says that their standards make them suitable for replacement parts. Not exactly OEM is it?

What do you chaps think of non Renault suspension parts? Who makes Renault parts anyway?
I'm sorry but I can't answer your query fully but I would think twice about suspension parts with made in China on like (Just through personal experience)... The Chinese are taking over the world there exports is booming
