AC Delco vs. Moog for front end parts

I will be replacing the center drag link shortly, and am wondering if I should go with Moog from Advance Auto, or AC Delco through Rockauto? I'm most interested in quality and fit. Also, should I change out the tie rod ends as well when the center link is replaced? Thanks.

IIRC, I purchased Moog through RockAuto (Be sure to use the discount code). If you haven't replaced any of the front end components (which would make them well of 20 years old), I suggest you do so.

I just bought a complete kit from advanced auto last week. I saved a little money by going with the TRW centerlink, made in USA, and it is beefier than the stock one side by side. The rest of the components I went with Moog.
