I'm thinking primarily suspension parts (ball joints, tie rod ends,...).

Prothane bushings, Eibach springs, and Koni shocks/struts are probably going to be the closest thing you're going to find to "race quality" for a Fiero, in mass production market, unfortunately.

I'm probably going to need custom tie rod ends in my case anyway, since I'm going to install an S2000 steering rack in my car. Moog and Timken are probably going to be best quality for stock Fiero suspension (if they still make parts for the Fiero). I don't know if Rodney has those parts for stock configuration (I know he has lowering ball joints), but if so, the place that makes the parts he sells does pretty good, so get them from him if he has them.
