front end rebuild

so i was looking for sway bar link bushing rebuild kits( i guess dont exist sadly ) and i came across a link on the interwebzz that brought me to this


and was wondering your guys thought on this. i mean the ball joints alone from napa with my works discount still would be close to $200 and this kit comes with the whole front end, and a 10 year warranty manufactured right in detriot. thoughts??

Re: front end rebuild

I was on board until I saw the price. I would never trust a whole stinkin front end package for only $223! You get what you pay for...

Re: front end rebuild

Reviews on amazon seem decent... hmm... I just bought a 2002 axle that I could use all on this on also.

Re: front end rebuild

Reviews arenít bad. If youíre looking for stock performance by all means go for it. This is the chit the shops would buy and install for you and charge you out the (__!__) for!

If youíre looking for quality parts - go moog. They are greaseable and you can maintain them easier. Hell I donít even look at them sob until I spun a bearing or snapped an axle (already did happen) - Tbh, even with moog parts - I donít see them lasting anymore longer than our original chit to warrant the increased in price. I have well over 400k on one of my 7.3 and all original front end - Iíll rebuild it later. It doesnít drive like new but it does drive down the road lol.
