I bought the front end rebuild kit from PST. There ball joints are not the best ( used some one elses). But the kit was very easy to install and included all the parts (Tie rod ends, New Polygraphite bushings for the control arms, and ploygraphite bushings for the sway bars, etc...). I think the kit is roughly 300+.

As far as the sterring box see if you get some one to rebuild it.

I got my steering box from Napa and it was $211. Just be sure to get the proper one...The first one they gave me...I put it on the truck, and when you turned the wheel left, the tires went right, and so on......SO....Don't make my mistake. As for front end parts, I have went with AC Delco, which have lifetime warranty. There are several good components companies out there, but you will have to decide if you want to go with something more specialized. Good luck...and the steering boxes are heavy.

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...

The SSI steering stabilizer and the 3rd gen track bar conversion made a WORLD of difference! Wished I hadn't waited so long to do it.
