Sway Bar Bushings and Links parts question

Does anyone have recommendations for an aftermarket brand that’s equal or better quality than the Genuine Land Rover Sway Bar Bushings and End Links?

I’ve seen a lot of these parts from Eurospare, Centric, Febest, Moog, Britpart, Mevotech, Lemfoerder. Etc..
The Genuine Land Rover branded are double or triple the price.

It’s for a 2008 RRS HSE. 4.4l petrol. (Non ACE)

Many parts on the rover I would only go with the factory part but the bushings and end links I’m on the fence about.

Any personal experiences or preferences? 2006 LR3 HSE
2008 RRS HSE

The OP is referring to the anti roll bar bushes (sway bars in the US) and the drop links from the ends of the bars to the suspension arms.

When I've had them done, I've had genuine LR bushes fitted by a main dealer and "may be genuine LR but I didn't check" by an indy garage. No difference in quality or life span so far as I can tell. One set of drop links were, I think, genuine and fitted by the indy.

As suspension bushes are a consumable item on these vehicles, you may as well get the non-LR parts (which in some cases will be the same part anyway just without the LR box) and save a few bucks. Thumbs Up 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed
