You're best to go with OE for this part. I would find it hard to believe
that anyone making these aftermarket would not cut corners. The
OE one is premium materials and even at that, they do eventually
fail. I'm on my second one since '68. When it fails (and it will happen
to you if you have the car long enough) they are a PITA to get to
because they break when the hood is shut and you go to open it.
As the drill sergeant said, "I taught you everything you know. I didn't teach you everything I know."
"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so."
