Default Front Lower Ball Joints: OEM vs. Aftermarket?

Sorry if this question has been answered before but after some searching I couldnt find it. Anyways, I need to replace the front lower ball joints on my '98 GS300 and I was wondering if it is worth it to buy OEM replacements or a set of cheaper replacements from Auto Parts Warehouse. The car is just a daily driver but I know how dangerous lower ball joint failure can be so I was wondering if anyone has any experience with some of the replacement brands from Auto Parts Warehouse vs. OEM. Thanks!
