I've been slowly replacing every rubber piece underneath for the last year...since I bought the car.
The latest repair are the guide rod mounts....they were TOTALLY shot. Making all kinds of noises up front.
I plan on keeping the car until the wheels fall off.....then I'll put some new wheels on it and drive it some more. So, it's worth it to me to just go ahead and replace them all because if they're not worn out by now, they soon will be.
When I've done them all, I'm golden for another 15 yrs
