Looking for better than OEM FRONT endlinks

I want to replace my current stock front endlinks. I do not want adjustable front endlinks, just better (heavy duty) than OEM to complement the Hotchkis front sway.

I only found a pair from Turner Motorsport but I can't tell if it's OEM or better. Can anyone suggest a brand/sponsor?

Turner Motorsport endlinks

Thanks

Interesting, $109.95 for a pair? It doesn't say in the website.

I haven't found any front links that are cheaper other than the OEM parts. Everything was less than $100.

Wow, those look NICE. If it weren't for a million other parts needing replacement, I'd get those...

they look nice but the ball joint socket doesnt have any rubber boots/protection from dirt, the grease will also run out soon thus cause noise.

I've got no complaints using the stock end links with my upgraded suspension.
