Inner/outer tie rods?? Choices choices (help)

Well, it seems my inner/outer tie rods are shot and I have been on the net searching for the past few days to figure which fits my needs. Car is mostly daily with sparse auto-x. Did some searching and I noted a few things:

1) It seems the aftermarket ones favour drift setup of having adjustability in mainly steering angle
2) The after market ones are mostly thicker (I think 14mm, but not sure, for most)
3) The S14 can be interchanged with the S13 but not vica versa
4) Not all aftermarket outer ends are compatible with the inner (rods) threads.

Now, with all these, I havent come a good conlusion. The car is definately not going to see any drifting anytime soon (if ever) so I dont think I need the adjustability of the steering angle. But, at the same time, most of the replacement versions (quality ones atleast) are just a few dollars less, so why not spring the extra cash for something reinforced (aftermarket) which I wont be worrying abot for a while??

Any recommendations from you folks?? I need to get em in here by the end of the week to install

Tein is a good upgrade from OE while keeping the grease type bushing instead of going full pillowball. It's also very conservatively price compared to OE parts.
