I know I can go to Kanter and get a lot of the parts, but I've always mixed reviews on a lot of their products.

Does anyone have preferred vendor for brake/suspension components?

Thanks.

What are you looking for?
What application?
I have several boxes of NOS stuff around I need to find a home for.
Do your research and come up with some part numbers.
Folks do have NOS stuff in original boxes you know but don't know how, or have not taken the time to I.D. them.

I have a 1955 Coronet with a V8. I'm trying to determine what I still need exactly. My plan is to try to start acquiring parts over the winter, and start getting the work done in the spring.

I suspect among other things, I should probably get one of the master parts catalogs.

I use master catalogs for say Moog, Raybestos, Wagner and Bendix. You would be totally surprised to find the part numbers work for not a few models but decades using the same part/s. Chrysler used the same ball joint, don't remember, from the 40's to the sixties.
