My NEW hood hinges are JUNK

My 24 year old hinges seemed to have a lot of slop, so I ordered a new set from 4 wheeldrive hardware........black,part 7402bl.

The new ones have more slop than the old ones plus they are covered with welding slag......They are Omix-ADA from china..

Now I like 4 wheeldrive hardware and glad they are here to serve us, but really, some of their product sucks!!!!! The brand mentioned above are ussually POS

Yeh, that brand is crap. I have always had good luck with Kentrol. That other brand is cheaper than Kentrol, and that is why.
