I have an EMPI in the passenger side, stock fell to pieces at 70K miles. It looked good new, it's not like I removed the boots to inspect the CV joints but it installed easily and is working fine 4K miles later. I like that it's a new part, not reman and no core exchange necessary. I believe some of the reman companies require the core in advance and that doesn't make any sense if it's your only vehicle.
Cardone is probably the most well known, and I guess some would say reputable, brand on your short list BTW.
