Ok just received an email back from Dorman.

Dorman's are Made in Taiwan.
FWIW, I make a distinction between “Made in Taiwan” and “Made in China.” Taiwanese stuff is generally better quality, in my experience. Preference of origin for me is:

1) USA
2) Canada
3) Germany
4) UK
5) Mexico

Sometimes you don’t have a choice.

The lowers they make are for S10's 95 and up I think.

You have to drill out the chassis side lower control arm mount bolt hole one size up or change the bushings in the new arms to GBody size ones

I would flip flop 1 and 2 for obvious reasons being from Canada. Three and four agree for sure, 3 especially for engineering. I would put Japan up there way over Mexico, high quality and they are a first world country. I would honestly go Chinese or probably Taiwanese first over Mexico for quality on certain things. I would definitely support many European products, Scandinavian countries especially. My reason is you know those workers have the same and dare I say maybe better quality of lives than us over here.
