Any good suspension kits?

My stock suspension is trash! I have the 1'' Sway bar in the rear which helped alot but the front is aweful. Left hand turns are worse then right hand turns. Seeing if anybody knows of a really good full suspension kit for a 72, anything under 1000 bucks. Thanks

If you're only starting out with $1000 I'd start out with new poly bushings up front, and new rubber bushings in the rear, all in the stock arms (boxed rear lowers) and some Hotchkis 2" lowering springs all around. Buy some decent shocks, and replace ball-joints, tie-rod ends, etc. 1-1/8" front sway bar and 7/8" rear would work well. (stock F-41 sizes).

If you want a mild performance upgrade, use tall upper ball-joints... (Howe Precision from SC&C, not the truck ones dirt-track guys run) I'm not sure if you can get away with using stock upper arms with these, so check to see if the suspension will travel all the way to the bumpstop before the ball-joint reaches its travel limit.

$1000 won't allow you to do much more than that.
