Anyone here used MAS Suspension Parts?

I'm going to fully rebuild the front suspension on my 96 k1500, found the MAS parts on Rockauto. Their site says built in North America, but nut familiar with them. Anyone have good or bad experiences with MAS Suspension parts?

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

UPDATE. I bit the bullet and ordered ball joints, tie rod end, etc, for the '96. They got delivered today. Every box says"MADE IN CHINA". Still gonna install them , but really disappointed!

I sent a message about my disappointment to MAS Industries. I got a reply, explaining who the are. They are a global manufacturer, that for 20 years, have been making private label parts. Here is a quote from the message I received.
]To address your question about why no one has information on us, it's because we've been a private label supplier for PepBoys, O'Reilly, Factory Motor Parts, Autozone, Pronto and Federated.

Since I have had good experiencestuff with many private label parts, I do feel better about using them.

Re: Anyone here used MAS Suspension Parts?

How did it make you feel when they lied to you about country of origon? At least if you had went one of those listed stores you could have inspected said parts and said. No thanks I will look somewhere else. You can find good parts if you look but most places (rock auto) comes to mind only care about getting your cash. They know most people wont go to the trouble to return and complain. If everyone stops shopping local Mom&Pop stores they too will be gone! Sorry for the Rant! Put my name in the put the dimmer switch back where it belongs crowd! Old fart.
