LCA: oem vs aftermarket

What's the general consensus? Are aftermarket lower control arms better, worse, or the same? 4 '03 has a new oem replacement on one side, but I want to do the other and want to make sure I don't end up doing it twice.

The LCA itself is pretty strong and unlikely to fail - The bushings and lower ball joints need to be be replaced. I think if you find quality aftermarket, it should work well. I went with TRQ/ 1 a auto. Cheap bushings and ball joints will likely wear out on you
