Replacing the front end in my 2011 Sedona

With nearly 200,000 miles, my front suspension is just about toast.

Over the next week I plan on replacing most of the components.

I would have just ordered from Advance Auto, since they've got great coupons, but a mechanic friend of mine recently mentioned that he wouldn't order parts from them. I trust his word on that.

I don't have the opportunity to ask him which brands of parts that he does recommend, so I'm asking you, the Kia community.

From where should I buy my suspension components for my van? Any particular brands to recommend?

I would look at Rockauto . I have had success with Mevotech suspension parts when OE wasnt available. I think MOOG is now overpriced and not what it was 10-15 years ago. Lemforder, Beck/Arnley are good brands worth the price as well. If you trying to go cheap look at amazon.

I second Rockauto.com as I have had very good luck dealing with them for parts.
