What are the top choice brands for a <2007 control arm including ball joint? Obviously OEM is one. Are there any known good--or known bad--brands? Elsewhere, experience has been that even formerly reliable brands such as Moog are pretty hit or miss.

I see Delco Professional, TRW, Moog, etc. at relatively reasonable prices. Not looking for the bargain basement replacement, but one that will last.

Moog is fine. Avoid proparts.

Always avoid Proparts!

The OEM control arm was painfully expensive, but everything else is as well that I can easily get, so I ordered the OEM with bushing. Unfortunately Orio no longer sells the big bushing separately. I may want to have that replaced on the other side with a good aftermarket one if that's worn.
