    I just replaced mine on my 03. 222K miles on OEM so I went OEM. Just feel better about it.

    Did the OEM links come with the bushings along with the nuts/washers?

    I replaced mine with aftermarket. They are not a critical failure part so i saved a few bucks. I actually disconnected mine for a long time for improved travel...

    Had these replaced during my front suspension refresh last year at a local shop. The aftermarket links they installed snapped in half within a couple weeks of normal road driving. They called the manufacturer and explained the situation and were told they were a bad batch. I ended up getting Moogs put on there and have had no problems since.

    I'd go polyurethane from energy suspension.

    edit: derp you need the whole link not just the bushings
