There really aren't much options, but since you are lifted if you have the funds I'd just get the oem recommended part. Their really isn't anything upgraded unless you make your own. I replaced one of mine, only because it broke and it was an off brand.

You can have a weld shop box up the stocks of you're worried about strength.  I've been running stock with a lift for about 5 years now.  I replaced the joints under the recommendation of a mechanic and neither of them were bad.

The welds are stressed, just need them welded up
