Q: Suspension Parts for Rebuild
I am rebuilding my front end, were is the best place to buy all the suspension parts ,Ball Jounts,tie rods,control arm bushings etc.
A: I’ve done some $$ comparison (as of January 2000):
PST (800-247-2288) has an KIT for – $149 (rubber) – $219 (polygraphite) it includes:
2 upper and lower ball joints
4 upper inner control arm bushings
2 or 4 Lower inner control arm bushings
2 strut rod bushings (if needed)
2 outer tie rod ends
2 stabilizer links
2 sway bar bushings (gotta measure the bar, I think Its either 1.375 or 1.625)
Control arm bushings
They also have a kit for – $289.00(rubber) – $359 (polygraphite) that includes the above as well as:
1 idler arm
2 innner tie rod ends
2 tie rod adjusting sleeves
2 upper innner shafts
Year One (800-YEAR-ONE) doenst give a complete kit ya gotta buy them seperatly – Classic Industries (800-854-1280) claims to carry (polyurethane suspension kit) “everything you’ll need”, that includes everything but no sway bar bushings for $189.95.
As far as shocks go – i dunno. I do know however you can get a set of 4 KYB gas shocks for $119.00 from PST. i’ll probably buy from PST just because they seem to have it together. I havnt ordered any of this yet I’m waiting on something. I dont know what – but I’m waiting. Good luck let me know.
