Front End Rebuild

I am going to rebuild the front end on my stock 69 Z28. Who would offer the best kit to do a full rebuild.


Thanks,
Chris

Hotchkis would be one to proud of if your looking for performance.

Re: Front End Rebuild

Are you refering to a bushing rebuild? Since it is stock I imagine you dont want to upgrade control arms sway bar, etc? I just bought an energy suspension bushing kit and it seems like all you would need.

Re: Front End Rebuild

If your steering componets are still original they probably need to be replaced: ball joints, tie rods, etc. That is next on my to do list as well - I am going with all new Moog parts and energy suspension busings, Hotchkis sway bar.

Re: Front End Rebuild

Original performance or upgrade to poly? Performance Suspension used to have good parts (my kit is around eight years old) in complete kit form and I assume they still do. If you're going to go poly, get poly graphite as it is self lubricating and mine does not squeak although you do apply a good dose of the poly grease during assembly. Also the Edelbrock (et. al) solid tie rod sleeves are a good replacement for the stock clamps. If you want stock type, Rock Auto has about the best prices on Moog stuff although PST does both.
