Explorer Steering & Suspension Kit
I was very glad to see that the kit had all the right parts and they fit my 1999 Explorer perfectly. The only problem I had with the parts was that the passenger side upper ball joint pinch bolt was the wrong size and I had to use the old one to complete the job. The other concern I had was that the kit was shipped to Canada and the declared customs value was more than 2 times the kit price. I am guessing that this value was the individual part price rather than the kit value. The result was that the customs duties & taxes were increased the total cost by over $30.
