So far i'm at 600 just in parts and planned on having a shop do the labor. Noticed some differential bushings worn out as well but doesn't look like moog makes em. See anything i missed ?

Double check your list.
I'm seeing control arms w/ball joints and then more ball joints and bushing kits.
The control arms should already have the bushings and ball joints installed. There should be no need to buy them separate.

You only list 1 Moog RK620720 Control Arm

I was going to just have them pressed but decided to order them built. Didn't realize Moog was free shipping after 115.00 so that will work out even better. Monster of parts in rout

Complete Front End Rebuild.

Control Arms Top/Bottom

Idle Arms / End Links / Drag Bar / Tie Rods top/bottom

(new power steering pump on a side note, and bled hydro system per Chevy specs)
New Alignment


And Van pulls hard hard right under braking...

Calipers are 6 months old, pads / rotors the same.

Didnt pull at all to the right before front end rebuild.


All suspension parts brand new from Moog

Do hydro boost or masters cylinders go bad sometimes while doing power steering pump ?
