Default Aftermarket Control Arms replacements

Did anyone had any experience with OEM replacement suspension parts?
Need Rear Upper Control Arms. Dealership is asking $200 each. Aftermarket replacement are $50. They have "Dorman" or "Movetech". For a 25% price it's a good deal, but what about quality and logetivity? Both features OEM style rubber bushings, not sure how long they would last.
Scrap yards are selling 10 years old with 200k mileage parts for $75. Those are rusted and with associated wear of the age and mileage.

I don't see anyone selling his stock UCA...

Maybe post up in Members wanted are, there has to be bunch of members who upgraded and still have their old OEM ones. The ones in CA, AZ, etc should still be in good shape. I think Unionjack may have my old OEM ones.

I have the All Pro Rear Upper arms..........they seem to be fine after several years. Icon makes them as well. Just go aftermarket, they're a hell of a lot sturdier than the oem's!

I have the MetalTech uppers. They use a JJ on one side and black poly on the other. About $250 USD a pop for both. On a side note I have 1 stock upper you can have if needed. You pay shipping from NC though
Personally any after market one would be better. I like the AllPro's design with JJ on both sides or a custom one with Heim Joints.
