I've sold most of those brands, and would recommend that you stay with either Moog or NAPA. The sad truth is that almost all parts (Aftermarket and OEM) are coming from China, Taiwan, Mexico, etc.

Look for ISO-9000+ certification which gives some measure of quality control.
I like some of the Dorman stuff, especially because they do offer an alternative to OEM. Quality seems "decent" ... but not outstanding.
The sway bar that they make for my '98 Grand Prix GTP is solid steel as opposed to the factory hollow tube one, for example.
