View Full Version : ball joints and tie rod ends

Does any one know about the KOK brand ball joints and tie rod ends? I just found out about them. I know there made in china, and I heard they're been around for quite a few years, being rebranded in Australia as other brands. I can remember when ball joints and the like suddenly became cheap again, maybe about 15 years ago, maybe that's when it all started. Anyway, will the tie rod ends last a few years (maybe 3-4 years of normal driving), or will I end up regretting not paying a lot extra? Yes I know, should buy Australian, but these KOK are going for maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of the price!
