Finally got my new carb on (thanks for tellin me to get a Eddy). Now I need to redo my front end. What do you guys recommend? I would like to have some decent handling and stiffness is not a problem. Also I don't want to end up in the poor house!
This is where I went to rebuild my front end. Really great guy, knows what he's talking about. I put all urethane bushings in my car. The kit comes with everything you need to rebuild your front end. Good luck!

I personally use Moog parts, available at NAPA, etc. I don't care for the poly bushings (harshness/vibration/noise), but they will give you stiffer suspension (better handling). I find that as I've gotten a little older, I like to be comfortable on long drives, and to be able to hear and carry on a conversation. I also don't like to knock my fillings out on potholes. I recommend stock rubber bushings , stock suspension components (moog, trw, etc.), and a bigger front anti-sway bar as well as a rear anti-sway bar. Check out the Herb Adams stuff online. If money's no object, you can get tubular A-arms, heim-jointed links, etc. etc. It's up to you.
