where is better to get auto parts, autozone or local dealer?

The little rubber boot used on the joint of sway bar link and damp holder was broken on my Taurus 2000. I am eager to replace the part. However, Autozone and Ford local dealer said this rubber boot is not separate, I must buy the sway bar link. Could I get this little rubber boot from other place?

Quote of sway bar link from Autozone is $25, but from Ford local dealer is $48. Why the price is so different? The quality of the part from local dealer is better?

Thank you in advance for your reading and answers.

I always buy aftermarket parts unless it's a dealer only item. Just about any aftermarket part meets or exceeds OEM specs & is almost always cheaper than the dealer. Stick with autozone.
