Universal Flex Disc Quality Option

I need to replace universal flex disk and could find these four options.

http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/SiteSearch/26112226527/

I buy OEM parts usually, but they always cost more than other brands.

In this particular scenario, should I choose OEM $137 part or can I pick some other one?

I'm almost positive lemforder would be OE...so you can save the $20 at least. Meyle makes good bushing and is a reliable maker in general, but me? For a part that is as fundamental as this, on a car that has so much potential, I wouldn't bother saving the $50.

Also, you know to inspect...and probably replace the csb while you're there anyway?

Anyway, I believe on your car, to do the guibo, you need to drop exhaust and heat shield anyway...you're right there...the getting won't get any easier. Just saying.
