PST...Anybody ever heard of them

Ive been looking into getting some new suspension parts for my F100...Remind you, i have Torino IFS on it...Ive been looking all over the place for Torino brake upgrades and just some newer bushings and what not, and i came across this company called PST (performance suspension technology). They sent me a catolog and it is loaded with everything you could possibly need for a "musclecar" from GMs to Ford and even some import stuff...Either way, ive never heard of the company so im kinda skeptical to buying stuff from them if it might not be good, anybody ever heard of them or dealt with them?

Check online for info on them. I have not bought from them, but have seen them advertise in different car magazines for several years now.
Seems like one of the car mags has used them for project cars.

I purchased a front end kit from them for my chevelle by far the best deal I could find. I havent actually driven the car on the road yet so I dont know how they will perform. They sent me the wrong bushings for the bottom but their customer service was helpful to get them quickly exchanged. I think the pictures in the magazine makes it look like better quality stuff than actual, but I still think they will work just fine for street driven vehicles.

I'd recommend PST....

I bought their graphite impregnated stuff and replaced every bushing (front and rear) on my '77 'Vette. Best money I ever spent on the car!! Quality components and I recommend the graphite type over the polyurethane for a street car. Near equal performance without the squeeks of poly!

BTW, this was several years ago and they're still in business so they must be doing something right!

I ordered the front end kit and rear spring bushings from PST for my '67 F100 and also have purchased all new polygraphite bushings for my '67 442 from them as well, as well as a host of other parts. I'm very pleased with their products, prices and customer service.

When I ordered the F100 parts they sent me regular rubber axle pivot bushings instead of the polygraphite pieces I'd ordered, but a quick call to them remedied the situation and the correct pieces were here in a couple of days....and they told me to just keep the rubber bushings, since it wasn't worth their time to get them returned and restocked.

Bought a polygraphite bushing set and front end rebuild kit from them a few years ago.
Poly bushings were great, ball joints were cheapo (one was damaged and they wanted me to send it back before they would send a replacement, so I had to purchase another one from them and then try to get a refund unless I wanted to leave the car apart for 2 more weeks).
Also purchase 4 KYB Gas Adjusts for $119........a good deal IMHO.

Just currious...was it bad ball joints or rod ends that were bad or was it the poly bushings?

Doesn't Energy Suspension make their bushings?

I purchased the impregnated poly front end kit & KYB shocks for my Camaro - very pleased with quality & customer service. That was several years ago- I went with them because they had more in their front end rebuild kit than the competitors- they included the inner & outer tie rods. I would definitely buy from them again.

Kantor is great, and PST, well I've heard nothing good about their ball joints, so beware!! Grab a Hemmings and dig through it. You should find someone else that makes stuff for your needs. As for the bushings, Go polygraphite and most of the companys that sell that stuff all come from the same suppliers. Try Summit racing as well. For ball joints, try MOOG. Don't skimp when it comes to your front end! Nothing worse that a ball joint letting go while going down the road!! Only to have saved a few$$$

PST, and Kanter are the same people, and are serviced out of the same warehouse. The quality of parts is all over the map, the ball joints are for the most part junk. The poly bushings seem to do ok, the rubber bushings don't hold up well. If I can find the parts elsewhere, I do, the quality leaves something to be desired, but for some parts, they seem to be the only source.
