HD ball joints? EBC Brakes?

Is anyone running them? Alloy USA or Synergy? I noticed they were a little expensive, but are they even worth it? Also, what about the EBC brakes or kits? Thanks for your input!

EBC yellow pads and slotted and drilled rotors sitting in a box for the D30 up front. Haven't installed yet. Could not find a two piston caliper for an 89.

The 95 double diaphragm booster and master is a great upgrade can be found on extreme terrain but is $$$.

I've got the Moog HD ball joints, greasable and very heavy duty. But they do cost a bit more

Thank you Tiger! I'll look into those as well. Just a few more weeks and I'll be able to start getting down and dirty! Can't wait!

From what I understand the compounds they use have increased friction which helps stop faster (depending on your tires), alleviates fading and cuts down on brake dust (which isn't a big deal for me). Also if you run the slotted rotors the pads will wear more evenly and keep from eating up the rotors.
