hey, now that i have decided what to do with my front end, has any one used one of those kits from Canadian Mustang or American Pony Parts, if you have were they good parts, the price seems very good, if not where is the best place to go,
As always thanks for your brutally honest opinions, feel like i get the truth here

I just recieved a new kit from canadian mustang the parts look pretty good the only thing that I didnt like too well was the outer edges of the upper control arms had not been deburred too well but other than that the package looks real good but I havent installed any of it yet so I cant tell about the functional part of it or how well it wears

well thats a good start, do you think the deburring is an oversight or quick manufacturing? thanks for the reply

I think it was (lack of attention to detail)The bushings look to be installed correctly as well as the ball joints. It will probably be a while before I install these new parts but if I do get around to it I will let you know what I find.

Just 2 weeks ago I got all my stuff from Canadian Mustang. The stuff looks great and has the performance bushing in them so you don't have to go out and buy them seperate. Also, if you get you steering stuff there it's made by moog.
