If you guys were in the parts biz you would understand, the guys are right, tenneco, monroe, gabriel, whatever, they are the same parts in a different box. They arent all the same, but alot are. Don't get too hung up on names. I work for a large multi line dealership and yea alot of the parts prices are a rip off, but not the dealerships fault, we buy from the manufacturer just like advance, napa, etc. I'll get Bosch sensors all day from advance for my VW customers to save them money, ntk and denso for my Japan built cars and chrysler cars, all those parts are the same in different boxes. Sometimes tho the trick is figuring out what is the same and what is aftermarket junk. Do you really think MOPAR has their own strut manufacturer facility? Didn't think so.
So research a lil bit before you flame someone, bro
