Lower arms - Birth or OEM

Hi All,

Will need to replace both lower arms on the GT as the balljoints are shot and the rear bushes feel like they only have around 5k left in them. Am I best going with Birth or OEM parts? The Birth are half the price but I had a set of droplinks for the GTV from them and they were crap. However I have seen many posters here recomend them as good quality??

Which should I go for?

Genuine or TRW (who make the genuine ones for Alfa), nothing else for me now.

Avoid temptingly cheap ebay parts.
