pitman arm replacement part

I know a lot of the replacement parts are total junk. im ordering an acdelco idler arm but I cant find an acdelco pitman arm. Is there a preferred brand on the pitman arm? im not sure if the pitman arm needs to be replaced. its a high mileage car with all original steering s im assuming the pitmans junk along with everything else.

There are no wearable parts on the pitman arm, it's very very unlikely to be in need of replacement.
