I would trust the 034 kit, but I purchased the FEBI kit(same as Purems) from a guy on ebay $495 +$12 S/H. I'm sure it can be found on there still.

Speaking of control arms...has anyone ever tapped and threaded in a grease zerk in the existing control arms? I know when I used to have a Dakota 4x4, lots of Dakota owners did that with good success, and that truck ate ball joints like they were free...

I just ordered fcp ones from ebay. We'll see how they go. If the oem ones are still not too horrible at 103k miles, I'm hoping these will last a few years at least.

I ordered the Performance Cafe 12 pc kit with sway bar links and tie rod ends. Came to 469 shipped with every piece of hardware you need.
The hardware is a huge plus because now i know i can torch and cut all the old shit off when it gives me a hard time.

Just got onto the performance cafe website and the price is now 589.-- so ECS tuning is cheaper... maybe ill wait a week before I order.

Our Febi kit is really a very popular kit.
Made in Germany unlike many of the kits on eBay. And backed with a 1year warranty.
