A question on the best brand.

I took my jeep in yesterday for an alignment and found it was within factory specs. But since I had it there and already took off the time from work, I had them do an inspection since I recently lifted it. They came back and said the passenger hub, all of the tie rods, Passenger CV boot and rear sway bar links need to be replaced. I'm looking online at ebay and other places for these parts and I was wondering what y'all have used to replace these parts. Since I'm having to replace, should I get upgrade parts instead of OEM or near OEM parts? I figure the sway bar links I'll probably upgrade, but I'd still like to see what others have or are using.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you

Hubs I would buy Timken or SKF. Tie rods I would buy Moog. CV boot I believe Moog has a replacement as well, make sure the joint is good and you don't need to replace the whole axle shaft. Sway bar links you could probably go aftermarket since you are lifted, no recommendation there. Compare Amazon, Ebay, and Rockauto for prices. Rockauto usually has great prices but shipping can add up. Sometimes Amazon or Ebay can have better deals since you can usually get free shipping.

I agree with above. Rockauto.com
Get yourself some timken hub assemblies, all Moog PROBLEM SOLVER tie rod ends, and cv axle shafts. For the sway bar links, get on eBay or Amazon and get some zone links for your desired height.

I'm using everything mentioned, except I got my cv axle shafts from advance auto with $40 off coupon. Been working just fine for the past 6 months.
