Recommend a good supplier for front-end rebuild kits?


Hi all.

I've found several sources on-line and in magazines that sell front-end rebuild kits for 58-64 Chevs, but I've never dealt with any of these companies before. My past project cars have all been new enough that I can usually just go to NAPA and get the parts I need.... this is my first adventure into "restoration parts" vendors.

Can anybody recommend a supplier they've had a good experience with?  Things like customer service, parts in stock, fair shipping times and prices, and perhaps most important, good quality parts are what will help me figure out who to buy from.

Thanks in advance!
- Jeff

From the experience I have had lately, I would guess, the guys on line, and in magazines are selling the same stuff!   I trust my Car Quest and Napa guys...If something doesnt fit, or I order wrong, I can take it back up town!  Just my 2 cents Carl2   YES THEY CAN GET  MOOG STUFF TOO

I rebuilt my 62 a few years ago....All the parts were readily available through my local parts store. 58-64 Chevs are popular enough that they are not hard to get parts for.

Only use Moog parts. Too much off shore junk showing up lately, also a friend with a 66 Ventura had bad luck with the Kanter ball joints. The cotter pin holes were drilled too low on the threaded shank so when the castle nut was torqued up the cotter hole was below the slots in the castle. OOPS.
