Front End Rebuild..

I am planning on doing a front end rebuild on a '67 Cougar and want to know what parts I should replace. I have seen kits for more than $400 but also smaller kits for less than $200 and want to know what to look for and what is most important to replace.

Im trying to save as much money as I can and this car is only a daily driver with a stock 302 and C4 automatic. I found a kit for $200 that has the ball joints, lower control arms, and tie rods but if there are other important parts to replace maybe I should look into a more complete kit.

Hmm, maybe anything that rattles....

Add upper and lower control arm bushings, and check all of the tie rod ends, steering components, basically anthing that moves with the suspension for wear.
You can never have too much power, just not enough traction...
