Default Buying Car Parts

I am in the market to purchase car parts to repair my 2005 Nissan Maxima SE. Initially I planned to purchase OEM parts then I started to consider after market parts. I am purchasing four parts, one which has to come from Nissan but the other three I have the option to purchase after market parts. What are the best after market brands? Does it depend on the part? Here are the parts I need to purchase:

Right Front Lower Control Arm (need the bushings and balljoints) Nissan Part No. 54500-7Y000

Left Front Inner Tie Rod 48521-7Y000

Right CV Axle Shaft 39100-7Y016

Low Pressure Hose 92480-7Y000 (has to be a Nissan part)

Any information that you can give me on the best or better brands would be greatly appreciated.

It does depends on the part.

You can get all parts you listed aftermarket. For the axle shaft, I suggest getting a remanufactured one, the price is around $100. Check sites like rockauto.com or autozone, they have good aftermarket parts.

Actually it depends on the part and to where you will purchase your Nissan Auto Parts. If you're looking for cheaper parts, then possibility will be its not durable . Anyways, Here are some sites that might help you in purchasing Nissan parts. Here are the following sites:

I would be comfortable buying any of those parts aftermarket. I like Advance Auto Parts - have had good success there. You can order online for in store pickup and save shipping. Rockauto.com is also very good, though there you have to add in shipping.
1997 Maxima SE, 5 speed, dark green with tan leather, 235K+ miles and still going strong.
