need new front suspension
 
gonna replace everything up front as far as ball joints tie rods coil springs etc. what avenue should I go as far as good replacement parts. which brand? moog,dorman etc. also should I use rock auto or local parts warehouse.

Was thinking of putting on d250 coil spring or heavier duty than original. was trying to get the front end up a little higher. I don't know if going with taller coil would affect the other components. any of you guys every do this? input? please?

thanks, Chris

Moog is a personal favorite of mine. Napa's premium line is also good stuff. I can say from experience that Rock offers exceptional service.

I installing D250 coils I think would make a very stiff ride on A D150.
Even if you upgraded every thing to D250 all it would is make the ride stiffer upset handling. Moving your suspension to heavy duty 1/2 componets both front and rear would be eaiser and less expensive. It would stiffen up suspension but not as stiff as a 250. There are many kits to raise all types of vehicles and are safe. I would not recommend using cut coils on the front. I have on a number of times used airbags they work great and are adjustable by adding or removing air. Give a stable ride.:Wow1:
