    Constructive criticism is always welcome... Just be gentle. I'm not a real mechanic.

    You've got tools and a functioning brain, you're a mechanic. Experience will only make you better.

    Looks like a bargain!

    I won't even tell you Americans how many Canadian pesos I had to spend for all that moog junk. My new drag link (minus the TRE and adjuster) cost more than that whole kit.

    doesn't seem to be MOOG parts. the part#s seem to be universal for all brands.

    The part numbers are fairly universal between brands. Sometimes they'll add a letter or something before the part #, but you're right it's usually almost identical across the board.

    Edit: Oh! I didn't mean that the ebay link were moog parts. I just meant the parts I used specifically were moogs.

    From the seller on Ebay:
    The brand is XCP


    I've never heard of that brand...

    Going through Rockauto and finding the cheapest parts, I got a total of 75.72, not sure if rockauto charges for shipping.

    for the same parts just MOOG, it comes out to 194.60. However, I can substitute the MOOG sleeves with the cheaper ones, that brings the total down to 177.54

    Chart below:
    Rock auto
    1 x Part # DS1310 Connecting drag link p/s 30.79 Moog 72.79
    2 x Part # ES2079S Sleeves (9.54) 4.77 Moog 13.28 26.56 /17.06
    1 x Part # ES3096L Tie rod at pitman arm 6.80 MOOG 23.73
    1 x Part # DS1312 Connecting drag link d/s 21.79 Moog 47.79
    1 x Part # ES3096L Tie rod on left side 6.80 MOOG 23.73
    ____________________
    75.72 194.60
    Using the cheaper sleeves 177.54

    Stupid formatting here messes up the chart...
