Looking for a quality front end kit supplier, as I am looking to have my front end gone through. I have already done the control arm bushings and the center link, but I would like to know which kits are best quality.

So... Bernbaum over Kanter?
We've used both sources at Smitty's Classic Cars restoration shop. Prices for particular parts vary but overall they are fairly comparable. Dealing with Bernbaum is more satisfying - at least from our experience. Plus they gave us three $100 gift certificates for door prizes, etc. when we held the National DeSoto Club covention in Branson last August.

CORRECT -- N.O.S. USA cannot be beaten -- and the mail order world of the outfits mentioned is all overseas made products...
I have quite a bit of Money.O.S. USA made products.....

I’ve used mobileparts recently for brake parts that both Kanter and Bernbaum could not provide. Craig was great to work with. I wasn’t aware of other products he has or I would have suggested that you give him a call. If he has your parts, you won’t be disappointed.

Before I buy anything with rubber involved -- I inspect it -- your fear is real -- rubber CAN be an issue, if npNOT inspected. And once I own, it is kept inside and dry, such that
Everything you get from me will be beautiful!!

I still like moog and trw when I can get them. As for boots I kinda lean to neo-prene from engery suspension if they have them. Alot things can be got at NAPA just ask if china made or not. the gold line is better and you pay for it. But heck you still get life time warranties @ Auto-zone, Orielies and such. What I like about Rock Auto is you get to choose which manufacturer they have available. American made is hard to get but you can get them. What amazes me is watching the reality rebuild shows saying the sticker shock prices and you see Auto-Zone lables.
