    OEM all the way.

    eBay is your friend.

    Find your parts manual, here:
    Maintenance, Service, and Parts Manuals | Chrysler 300 - Dodge Charger, Magnum, and Challenger

    If you have a first gen car, you may aso find your workshop manual, there.

    Hope this helps.

    I have used aftermarket for both in my car and have had 0 issues. if oem is available and price isnt an issue then why not... however i doubt there is much of a difference and i live on a budget lol.

    There's a huge / ongoing misconception that somehow OEM is "better".

    Aftermarket in most cases are the same Contractors to the OEM.

    Buy what's available to you and don't worry about it...

    Just to chime in here, Simon is correct about aftermarket vs OEM. Most aftermarket parts I have used on my car I have had little to no problems with. I did replace the camshaft sensor on my car previously and used a BWD part. Now the one caveat I will mention is some aftermarket like Dorman is hit or miss on some parts. Very rarely would there be a issue, but having said that, issues can arise with either OEM or aftermarket parts.

    I think this type of innuendo develops not from facts but rather a misplaced mindset that somehow a part that is either, a) biased-based because they are not produced on this continent so is instantly (wrongly) marginalized or, b) has exhibited a single failure that was broadcast by one individual that blows up (Internet in action) into marginalizing ALL parts associated with that OEM or vendor.
