So today I crawled under and noticed my front struts are labeled BWI Group, made in Mexico. Clearly not genuine gm. So I searched online, found the company homepage and learned they’re from Beijing China. Not cool. So I tried to find some reviews and see if they have a good reputation but there’s really nothing of the sort out there. Anyone heard of these or had experience? Opinions?

are you having issues with the part ?

they were formerly DELPHi ( very reputable), but like most things...appear to have ben bought out by a larger investment firm.

Ride quality is not my favorite, I want to lift anyway. I’m getting some pretty loud road noise but have not pinpointed the cause. One tire guy said the tires are wearing funny, another tire guy said the tires are perfectly fine. Looked underneath for anything loose or out of the ordinary, found the BWI. But I’m thinking now, maybe bad wheel hubs?

Could be anything...
Generally a pronounced thud/clunk will be noticed from a bad shock/sttut style setup

That’s a oem supplier. My 15 Yukon Denali shocks made by them.

often the oem will have 2-3 companies making the same part for them.

BWI has been making the mag ride shocks for GM for over 10 years now.

Unplugged the mag ride up front. Improved the ride significantly but I still want to get a more permanent solution
