Anybody ever use a P-S-T frontend kit?

I'm looking at a P-S-T kit for rebuilding my '87 Vette front clip. For $269.00 you get all 4 balljoints, outer tie-rod ends, all urethane bushings, etc. I've priced the balljoints and tie-rod ends at Advance and they're over $400.00! I'm wondering how P-S-T can offer such a good price while maintaining quality - or do they?

I bought a PST front end rebuild kit for my 55 Chevy. That was the summer of 2000 and I've had no complaints about the quality. As I recall the only bad thing about it was that they sent me the wrong idle arm bushing.

look at www.performancesuspension.com as a possible alternative for parts.

I got an energy suspension bushing kit in the color I chose. BOTH inner and outer tie rod ends, upper and lower ball joints and the price was less at the time. I now have 97K miles on most parts. I changed the upper control arms to tubular.

I replaced the idler arm and center link while I was at it too.

Iv'e used several of their kits from the standard to the Poly Graphite on a 74 Vette and all were of excelent quality. Iv'e also used the KYB shocks they sell with the same results. The tech line is friendly a willing to help with special orders or to recommend whats the best deal for any given job.

i used a complete P-S-T kit on my 77 Olds Cutlass and 4 new coil springs, it was top notch. I would recommend them 100%.

I'm wondering if these polygraphite bushings will squeak after a while. Car Craft did a rebuild with PST parts and said they would tell us if they squeaked or not in the next issue. Then they never said anything, so I figured they did squeak. If anyone can let me know, thanks.
