Best aftermarket suspension parts?

What brand of parts have you used and had good luck with? Specifically, I am talking about lower control arm shaft kits for a 70 C10. I am looking for opinions based on actual experience, as far as what brand has lasted. I know most of the brands out there, including Moog, are not US made, but I am willing to pay more for better quality.

I ended up finding NOS GM upper & lower ball joints, and Dorman upper control arm shaft kits, which I am not sure if made in USA or not, but looked like good quality, and Moog lower control arm shaft kits, which ARE made in USA. Total cost $175.00.

I used the front end rebuild kit from ECE. It's a good quality kit and all Moog parts. Also upgraded to the 9/16" LCA u-bolts.
