I just buy the factory replacement parts unless thay are no longer avalible. I know they are more expensive but you get what you pay for. But to be honest most big name filters should be fine as long as your replace them at regular intervals like 30k miles. I have personally heard stories about fram oil filters from my mechanic friends but I stick with motorcraft/autolite parts. One exception to the oem parts is the front sway bar links since they go bad soo often they may as well be regular service parts. 150k miles on my Focus, running like new and I only use Ford parts (except sway bar links) so thats proof of good parts to me.
