Buying experience of OEM parts from Amayama?

I'm trying to source some Honda suspension parts. The dealer wants $130 for a stabilizer linkage and $160 for a lower ball joint (+ tax).
Amayama price is more than half of that with only $34 shipping. Does anyone here have good experience buying from them? Or should I go aftermarket for those items?

Yeah I bought quite a number of hard to find toyota parts from them, didn't have any issue. Their pricing was very transparent and since I had a few different parts I was looking for I had a bit of a time trying to find parts from the same warehouse so as not to incur multiple shipping costs

I searched but almost no one talks about them here on rfd. I find they have the best price on oem parts (at least for Honda)
What is the value of your order? Do you get hit with custom?

My order was over 500 including shipping and I can't remember if I got hit with customs as it was a few years ago. I think I did, but can't confirm.

Why did somebody downvote this thread? I think it’s very helpful for more ppl to know and give reviews about online stores

There's always some idiot who does that.

Anyway, I tried ordering there. The parts itself is a good price but then the shipping was adjusted and it ended up double the amount which kinda pissed me off. When you order stuff, you can't pay right away, someone has to review it before you pay the "final price".
