Default g-body front end parts?? tie rods, center links, ball joints, etc.

for you guys that are making a good amount of power what are you using for front end components? like do you use moog parts, full aftermarket parts, stock parts like the control arms. im curioius as to what people are using from the center links, tie rods, idler arm, and ball joints to the upper and lower control arms and anything else up front. currently im running trick springs/90/10 shocks and basically stock parts up front but some reason dont trust them at high mph or am i being paranoid? thanks for any insight guys.

TRZ upper and lower arms, TRZ bump steer kit with new Moog inner. QA1 shocks and coil over springs. Factory center link, idler arm and manual box. Thinking of ditching it for a rack next. I have seem many a faster vehicles running factory replacement front end parts, no need to worry. You should be more concerned about camber at speed then any other detail outside of having a solid safe front end.
