Has anyone used or see these kits before and if so what are your thoughts. Would like to go through the front end and rear end this winter. Thanks

I did polyurethane from Energy Suspension. The PST stuff is supposed to squeak less. My ES stuff doesn't squeak at all. 

But yes, I've done five different vehicles with ES parts (Two Cougars, an Elite, my F100, and my Cavalier). Definitely helps to tighten up the car and loose the ocean going feeling.

I used PST components for my rebuild about 2 years ago, and I love them. There is no squeak at all...
I would just make sure that the kit fits your manufacturing date. Some of the kits for 72's were only made for cars built before, or after a certain date. My car didn't fall into the dates, so I had to piece a kit together from several parts.

I have all ES stuff in the MGT but haven't driven it yet so can't comment yet.

if you go with Energy Suspension or other poly items (I did as well) note that the RED ones do not have graphite impregnated in them, and the black ones DO (at least in Energy Suspension, but I think they are all the same).
Graphite is good as it prevents squeaking, while the red needs to be lubed.  Just a heads-up. And I can tell you, it definitely reduces the 'cruise-liner' feel!!!
