need to replace A arm bushings all ball joints & steering related parts + front end aliegnment on my '64 Bonn. has anyone ever used PST "Performance Suspension Techonolgy" parts & no one seems to know if their stuff is made in the USA+ PST would not tell one person that called them where they are made! typical rubber oem stuff for $249.
'65 & newer they have polygraphite!
& would it be wise to replace the sway bar also ???
thanks for any info
Mike

I don't know where it's made,but if it was the USA I'd imagine they'd know it.

Although it was for a diffrent car entirely, I just rebuilt my entire front end last year, used all Moog parts, seemed like good quality, I've read that poly aren't recommended for a-arm bushings for a street car, ok the use them for sway bar and then end links though.

Unless something has changed, Moog was always top quality. Unless looking to make it a road handler, Moog is the way to go. When I say road handler, I mean more like a modern car. With a big car like the Bonnie, I am not sure how much difference you will make unless going with all new A-Arms and everything else.

With the Moog across the board, it will handle/ride like new again.

I've heard that Moog quality has dropped the last few years.

67 Drake: Just did a search and there is a lot of bad stuff out there about Moog. How true, I do not know. What a shame though. Moog was one of the old dependables... When it comes time, I guess I will look elsewhere.

Same here,I'd buy Moog years ago without thinking. Now I guess it's just another China made part.
