149 shipped is cheap!
I go with Moog on everything possible. All other brands I buy 'professional grade' just to be safe.

Agreed as long as Moog is available, that's what I'm getting.

Just grabbed full set of bushings for the front end for $120, new daizens all control arm bushings, castor arm bushings, sway bar, and steering rack. Should I use the castor arm bushings or just order those Rocas or whatever from Sewell? I really want the figs set but it's really expensive.

always check www.rockauto.com for **** like this... before any other resources...

Time and time again, I point out to members of various models that RA is still cheaper than ebay, even by a few dollars, it's money in your pocket and not another middleman making their markup.

Awesome dude! That's great. Your car is gonna handle so much better once all of that is done. Make sure you grease the living hell out of those Daizen bushings though, they have a tendency to squeak over time.

I have the FIGS Caster Arms and I have no complaints.

RockAuto is definitely where it's at. I just showed a friend of mine who drives a Prelude that site last week and he couldn't stop thanking me LOL.. He was talking about replacing some parts and how expensive it can get and I showed him the prices on there for what he was wanting and he was like well damn.... lol

well my bushings on the car are still good, but i was able to get wholesale pricing on the full kit, I had the daizen's on my SC for the steering rack, they were a nice quality, handling was slightly tighter, steering on the GS is tight still too but steering wheel wasnt straight, maybe i should have tried getting an alignment first. I know for a fact the upper Control arms have been replaced, everything else looked good under there too though when i checked, no play at all according to my neighbor/friend/mechanic/toyota/lexus technician, lol.

Ok so I may not have needed new bushings, :/
But all my stuff came in now,
New Moog Ball joints and Daizen bushings
Should I keep the bushings or sell them? my dad made me feel like I wasted money, which I kind of do feel now,

Haven't done my LBJ's yet finals week and got laid off last week so I'm just trying to save my money up, but...
I start at O'reillys tomorrow, got the stances on all four corners, got rid of the Megan lps for something else oh and threw the drift spares on the rear. You'll see the something else when I roll my fenders :3

Looks good, and i feel you on getting laid off. I get paid $16 an hour, but when i told them my schedule for school it looks like they are trying to phase me out and give me less hours.
