Complete suspension package

Does anyone other than Pedders offer a complete suspension package. I am looking at the Pedders street II package and wanted to see if there is anything else comparable.

Define "complete" . I mixed and matched my suspension. It includes a Harrop diff cover which is much better than the insert everyone else sells and is 10x as much. I'm around $2,300 in my suspension and that was with shopping around and taking advantage of sales so you can spend a lot. You need to state what goals you have for the car (dragging, autocross, ride quality, budget?) and maybe I can suggest a few places to start

I was content with the stock suspension except that I have an inner tire wear problem. Front tires are wearing along the inner inch of the tread pattern all the way down to the steel belts. The rest of the tires still have 10,000 miles of tread left.

I know you can replace the strut tower bushings and one of the arm bearings and bushing. But as I started research everyone was telling me if you are going to do this you may as well change the struts and the rest of the bushings and the differential mount. So what started as a couple of hundred dollar fix turned into a couple of thousand dollar fix.

I hear the pedders system is awesome but expensive and wanted to know what the options are. I know very little about cars. I need to do this pretty soon before one of the bad tires blows. I have the Summitomo HTR's in my garage I just want to do the suspension before I mount them.

I drive the car about 25,000 miles per year and want a reasonable ride, cure the tire wear issue, and while I am at it upgrade the existing suspension.

There is a dramatic decrease in forward weight transfer under deceleration and braking.
