Cheap rear camber arms?

Took my car in for an alignment and they said they couldn't get left rear wheel within spec. -3.3 camber, actually increased -0.2. They told me I need new rear camber arms as is common with small mazdas. They quoted me $136 each plus $135 labor. Thought that was bit much so I went to rock auto and found these for $22.89:


Is it too good to be true? Looking at other ones on there, they all look to be the same, so are the Dorman ones really worth $127 more?

MEVOTECH CMS40125 - $44.79

MAS CA85506 - $56.79

MEVOTECH GS40125 - $69.79

MOOG K100002 - $75.89

DORMAN 522674 - $149.89

SPC is the original maker of the camber arms so all the other ones you see are either copies or re-labels. The only difference is the quality of the bushings used in the arms, you can see the difference in the pictures. I bought some cheap ones off ebay and a two years later one of the bushings was shot. I ended up reusing the stock arms with Whiteline camber bushing to get it within spec. With the camber being that far out though I would check for damaged suspension parts, I couldn't even get mine to -3 with the Whiteline bushings!
