I would start with a rebuild kit. Changing out the old tie rod ends, ball joints, and control arm bushings. This will cost around $250.00.

Then you might change out the old tired coil springs at $200.00 or less

Then some new shocks, good ones will set you back $100.00 each ish

Body Bushings, a rebuild kit, or just save money and go Hotchkis or Global West. But with the Summit you will get what you pay for

new tie rod ends,

new ball joints,

clean and paint control arms,

check for play in steering box/joint.

All this will be about $500-$600 if purchased through Rock auto and Summit.

Just installed most of my kit. The front feels fantastic, nice and planted.

Partial PTFB GT-pro suspension. Basically everything but the leaf springs. They are on back order so I put a set of 2" blocks in the back to match the front drop. Will need to slightly roll the rear lips as they do touch from time to time.

18x8 4.5" BS front with 245/45-18
18x9.5 5.25" BS rear with 275/40-18
