Vacuum Elements-what the best?

I am replacing the dash of my 84 300SD and need to order new vacuum elements. The original elements are Behr. Are these the best I can buy?

The vacuum elements are nothing more than a piece of rubber inside a plastic housing.

I'm not sure that "best you can buy" applies to these items and I am fairly certain that nobody as done a comparison between Behr and any aftermarket vacuum element (if it even exists).

The rubber deteriorates with time............not much you can do about it.
