Smile Need assistance with selecting Ball joints, Control arms & Bushings

So I'll be upgrading the suspension of my car and would like to know weather or not to go OEM or Aftermarket.

Right now I'm looking at Ball joints, Control arms and along with that the Bushings.

I've searched and learned that some people say go OEM or say go MOOG or to just stay away from MOOG completely.

I'd like a more modern response from you guys as to what other aftermarket brands for Ball joints, Control arms and Bushings are out there that have proven good for our cars.

Note that I have a V6 Sedan and would appreciate as much information as I can get from you guys. Thanks in advance!!!

lower ball joint do not use Moog. They squeak for some reason on our cars and gen3 TL. Also they can't be grease because the axles are too close to the valves. They actually didn't supply them with my lower ball joint. Highly recommend OEM for lower ball joint. Everything else Moog is okay. I have used their lower control arms, end links, and outter tie rods with no issues

I have had SPC control arms on the front and rear of my car for well over a decade. I have had no issues to date.

I can't answer about the Accord lower ball joint but if you use Moog you will never have a do-over unless you crash. They have the best replacement parts on the market. Except for special race parts they are also the most commonly used parts for circle track stock cars too.
