Question lower ball joints & what else

Hi All

I'm getting ready to order (from ole rusty)my lower ball joints.
While I'm in there I think I should go for lower control arm bushing and the guide rod mount kit. Now for the guide rod mount is there one on either side ( i have not looked) and I should get 2. While I'm at it what else would it be easy to knock out while I'm under there having all this fun.

Thanks A Lot

I can hear your hearts racing as you ponder the answer (Klatta, Klatta, Klatta, Klatta, Klatta, Klatta)!

There is a guide rod at each side.

Consider upper control arm bushings and sway bar bushings as well.

Replacing the lower control arm bushings requires compressing and removing the springs. Are you geared up for that?

I think you can get the whole upper control arms for $38/pair, so replace both of them.

Yes, you will need two guild rod mounts for a car.
