    I priced all the parts that I will need for the front end job that I had talked about earlier. For upper and lower ball joints, tie rod ends, center link, adjusting sleeves and pitman arm it came to a total of 250$. I thought that was a pretty good price for all that stuff. What do you guys think? The place I am getting this stuff from is northern auto parts. www.northernautoparts.com
    Oh and I also wanted to ask, when you upgrade to dual steering atabilizers do you end up getting a new center link with an additional mounting bracket for the extra stabilizer? If this is the case then I will not get the center link until I get the trailmaster kit.

    No, you don't get a new center link for the dual setup.

    Price doesn't sound bad , but check to see if balljoints have grease fittings

    Pretty sure they do but I will definitely check. What do you think about painting it all chevy orange before I put the parts in. Nothing fancy, maybe hammerite and then a couple of topcoats of orange?? What do you all think?
