Lot of up and down reviews, but price was really got my attention. Every part was a perfect replacement for factory ones and so far have held up very nicely. Great for everyday wear and tear.

So this kit doesn't work for the sport trac? Or it's only the sway bar links that aren't compatible?
Tony G on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: it is for the explorer and does not fit the sport trac. I am talking about the full kit.
Is this the kit with the ball joint already attached to the control arm?
JP chavez on Nov 11, 2017
