I am planning on rebuilding all four corners of the suspension system on my "project" 300D. It is my feeling that while I am at it I may as well replace all of the bushings at each corner. I know the ball joints are nearing the end of their useful life and the rubber bushing parts look pretty rough but what will I have achieved by just replacing the ball joints and not the bushings? Has it been the experience of the techs here that it is best to just rebuild the complete suspension? Based on preliminary pricing it looks to be that the material will be around $255 each for the front (I have not priced the rear yet). I suspect that the shocks are original but believe it or not they are still in pretty good condition. They will get replaced as a part of the suspension rebuild.
thanks for suggestions/advice in advance
