Default front suspension kit available in oz?

Hi folks.
Just wondered whether there was such a thing available in Australia as a front suspension rebuild kit? Seen a couple on ebay in usa, but haven't seen a kit as such "locally." (I'm very very new to jags - sorry if this is bleedin' obvious)

What type of kit? Poly or rubber? In any case I wouldn't buy a kit because you don't know the quality of the individual components. I'd source name brand non china ball joints, your life depends on them. For a driver, I'd use OEM style rubber bushings everywhere except the 4 upper control arm bushings. The OEM ones loosen up after just a few thousands miles and are expensive. The poly uppers don't add any significant harness, but do offer lasting precise control. You may also want to consider poly steering rack bushes over OEM rubber. They do last longer but also add a noticeable amount of feel that some appreciate and some find harsh.
