That is what I worry about when using Chinese parts that are not verfied or validated by anyone as being truly road worthy. Glad you got through that safely.....
I sense AutoZone and Adance Auto make a much higher profit using private label Chinese knockoffs than stock parts from DELPHI/AC DELCO, MOOG, Wagner, etc. They do stock a few of them, but I am discovering they are stocking less of the name brand/ tested parts and only stocking their so called private label stuff.
