I have been searching YouTube and google reviews on Detroit axle, A1auto, moog and oem. Rock auto has a mevotech kit that looks decent. Might just bite the bullet on that. And there is no solid answer as to which parts are best bang for buck.
Also, is it best to swap out control arms or bushings and balls?

As far as parts i did the following brand/parts as they seemed like the way to go for me but i decided that based on what i felt was durable - good value and cost effective.
Moog branded U.C.A. w/ bushing installed = Mevotech branded L.C.A. Bushings and ball joint installed w/ Zerk fitting = MAS branded U.B.J. w/ Zerks = Gabriel Struts = MAS branded Outer Tie rod ends w/ Zerks = MAS brand w/ Zerks Stabilizer Bar Links = Moog Stabilizer Bar Bushing.
So far so good on what i purchased.
One tip i can give is to give the bolts that attach the lower control arm to the frame a good inspection as they can corrode pretty bad in salt ridden winter climates.
If your lucky and there not bad then a good wire brushing and a coat of paint followed by a coating of anti seize when reinstalling would be recommended.
