Quality of New Parts

Just ordered a directional switch for my 71 Blazer from 1A Auto and am reluctant to put this item into my steering column. Feels real cheap, the wires are brittle with no flexibility, the connector is real poor quality.

Has anyone ordered something new and feel the quality of the new paet is at leas close to the quality of the old one?

Re: Quality of New Parts

Yes that has been a problem for me as well. I went through 2 or 3 of the brake switches because the products aren't nearly the quality of the old ones.
