Ball joints we got through autozone auto parts.the tie rods were rebuilt by a shop in Compton,and all bushings were purchased from forum member Juan.pm me jay if you need the info on tie rods,I will try and find the address.they rebuild them for $25 a piece.

I put on the brake set up but we ran in to a problem with the wheels we were going to use.front rims hits the coil overs,if I put a spacer they clear but stick out past the fender a good 1.5".the rear only have a 2" lip but we want something more agressive.so we decided that we are going to get a set of bbs rs wheels and refinish those instead.we are trying to get 16x8.5 rear or 16x9 rear,and fronts 16x7 with the right offset so it will clear everything good.

Here's a pic of how the break setup looks.
