Default GT500 Front End Conversion Help!

So, I'm replacing my front end on my GT and I've been looking everywhere trying to find the best deal on parts for a gt500 front end. I know lots of people have experience with this and I've seen so many good examples, I was wondering if I could get some feedback and opinions, as well as some websites with good prices. I honestly don't feel like going to the parts shop at the dealer and getting screwed over... thanks guys

get the part numbers and go to the dealer. The dealer is going to be the cheapest because you avoid freight shipping charges. However the trick is to get the real prices and not the prices they give to someone that just walks in.
