Speaking of Dorman, some Dorman stuff that is absolutely 100% NOT junk. Front hub nuts. Solid 1pc with crushed threads----no more reusing stockers nor buying 1-time use multi-piece OEM nuts. $8.50ea on Ebay. Rears are also available, but mine came with new halfshafts already.
I recently did front hubs on my car and was sold these Dorman nuts. I returned one and warrantied the other. As noted by someone else, they tear up the threads on the spindle. Also, and more importantly in my mind, I COULD NOT get them to torque properly. As soon as the crushed part of the thread contacted the spindle threads it would take more than 250ft/lb to move, therefore not allowing proper torquing of the nuts once in place.
