OE would obviously be the better choice but you can save some money by browsing salvage yards, pick a-parts, wrecking yards, etc
Buying NSF or Capa Certified carries a backing by the big Insurance institutions.
They push for testing and crash test standards on all those parts so they meet the Industry qualifications and help to keep costs down.
If the parts have problems then the Insurance companies paying for all those repairs start having problems

OEM is obviously the best replacement product but CAPA stands for Certified Automotive Parts Association, and NSF stands for National Sanitation Foundation - Consumer Products Division). I would use CAPA certified parts myself. But here is a link to read and decide yourself. Replace - Quality
