Question Clutch cable replacement

Looking to replace my cable soon. Clutch pedal rattling lately but haven't missed any shifts yet. I've never replaced a cable before. Been watching YouTube videos on how to. Looks pretty easy. Should I stick with Ford OEM Cable or MM cable? MM is suppose to be Ford OEM?

Maximum Motorsports High Performance Mustang Clutch Cable MMCL-11 (82-95 5.0L; 96-04 All) - Free Shipping
Ford Replacement Mustang Clutch Cable XR3Z-7535-CA (96-04 4.6L V8, Excludes 03-04 Cobra) - Free Shipping

Do I need a firewall adjuster? Clutch Quadrant as well? Should I stick with Ford OEM with those as well?
Ford Racing Mustang Firewall Clutch Cable Adjuster M-7554-A (79-04 All) - Free Shipping
Ford Racing Mustang Double Hook Clutch Quadrant M-7583-A (82-04 V8) - Free Shipping

I think that's all, correct? Or is there something else I should replace while I'm down there.

I could be mistaken on this but I'm pretty sure I have read from people (Scotty included) that aftermarket cables are garbage and to always stay stock

Issues always seem to rise from non OEM cables. They just don't make them as good. Has to do with the lining inside.
I do believe the maximum motorsports one is an exception. Not positive. They sell quality stuff.

And ford racing is not oem. Mm firewall adjuster and quadrant are good.
