Default iX Tie Rods - Aftermarket Supplier? (Ocap)

Hey guys, was just pricing tie rod assemblies and noticed that Pelican has an aftermarket supplier listed, for about a third the price. Under fitment it lists only the iX. Is this too good to be true? Anyone have any experience with this part? Here's the link. I just noticed that the right side is actually ~$20 more expensive, but oh well.

I dont see the right side by OCAP, and I'm pretty sure pelican didnt offer this part the last time I was on the site about a month ago.

It comes up if you search by P/N (32211701040 for the right side). I guess I might end up being the guinea pig, unless anyone has some insight? Bueller?

damn, I must be doing something wrong, when I search for 32211701040, it says the OCAP one is $148.75 for the right side.
and left side 32211701039 is $48.50?
I hope theres a typo somewhere, I'd be willing to buy a set today if they were $100 for the pair.

Sorry, my first post isn't terribly clear. It's ~$20 more than OEM, which is odd especially given the price for the right side.

Be careful, I got suckered twice now by low price IX parts, but now I know. They say the parts fit IX's but the data entry people don't know. Amazon and Just Suspension got me on this, buy from reputable sources or from a live person you can order from and quiz them.

i highly suggest purchasing your parts from bluntech. he is a site sponsor on r3v and perhaps here as well. cheapest prices. free shipping over 100.00. he really seems to know what he is doing.

well I ordered the right OCAP tierod from pelican with a Lemforder right side. Will compare when they get here. Checked Bluntech.com and tierods were more than pelican
