Motorcraft is best if all parts are available. www.rockauto.com has Motorcraft and other brands at fairly good prices. If you open up the system you must replace the receiver dryer. 17 years is pretty good service.

www.tascaparts.com has Ford parts at a discount, but still mail order unless you live in Rhode Island.
