Is there a reputable brand that will land somewhere on the scale between 'cheap china shit' and Lexus OEM? I dont wanna spend several hundreds on parts and lose the steering feel a year or two down the road.

For anyone who has done this job, what did you use and how has it gone?

I just did my lower control arms #2 myself. I used Moog.

Moog RK642104
Moog RK642103

They were about $65 each on Amazon.

Did it myself in 5 hours without any prior mechanics knowledge other than oil/filter changes. No bad of a job now that I know how to.
