Fitted these at each corner but the guys at the alignment place can’t get it to align at all and have said it must be due to these non genuine parts.

The research I did before was all positive but has anyone had any issues?

Thanks

How far out is the alignment, is it just the Camber that is out when the toe is dialled in?

A few years ago some folk did have problems with a batch of Meyle coffin arms and Camber at the rear but not heard of any issues recently.

Also has your car been lowered, if so by how much?
It will be possible to sort but some extra parts are probably required.

Not sure about numbers but apparently they couldn't get it anywhere near at the back. It's been lowered 30 mm and they're using the X74 settings.

Hopefully all sorted, apparently a specific order to the settings is needed. SP were great and talked the alignment technician through the sequence. It's gone over to Monday but should be fine.

I had mine fitted by CG with Ohlins and I had no issues whatsoever, good parts at a good price.
