    I know when you but oem parts from Vauxhall there classed as Vauxhall parts, but they are produced by other company's for them for example even when you buy spark plugs from Vauxhall they got the Vauxhall badge on the pack even tho there made by Bosch, but does anybody know who produces there parts things such as suspension parts like drop links lower arms & track rod ends?

    I always thought it was either Delphi or febi blistein?

        Could be a variety of manufacturers - they simply get it made by whoever makes what they want or who can make it for the price they want, then it gets a part number and comes stamped with GM on it.

        Why the question?

            If they have GM part numbers on them then yes they will be OEM

                Martin,

                Trouble is that some of the bits may be good BUT even febi bilstein have been know to have Chinese factories and then box them up as there original products

                What parts you looking for in particular?

                Just the suspension stuff?

                I wouldn't have a google on it....minefield that as been searching the same sort of question but on engine mounts.

                Confused!

                  Just things like lower arms, drop links and track rod ends, I bought some off eBay a few months back just cheep pattern parts, was just trying to narrow down a knock I had, and now I got another knock so was going to replace them with decent stuff, and was just curious to see if anyone has had any experience with Delphi parts.

                  Engine mounts I'd go for the uprated road spec ones from Courtney's

                    Yeah, pretty much decided to do that tbh Martin, maybe call a local indie Garage. I'll ask mine if I drive past them re Delphi stuff.

                    Apparently Lemforder stuff is very good if they sell stuff for the Astra

                      Yeah Eurocar parts got the stuff I need in lemforder but it's quite dear £98.16 each for the lower arms, or the other ones they sell are Q drive and I've never heard of them before so il steer clear, if you do ask let me know what they say

                        Give lemforder a Google mate. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised as they seem to have a relatively good rep
