I am adding a performance suspension to my car (springs/shocks) I had the rear end rebuilt, but Im not sure what to do with the front end. (a-arms,ball joints, bushings, tie rods etc...) Any advice would be appreciated.

I would replace the steering links of they show signs of wear. (tie rods and drag link and idler arm bushings) Also check the ball joints for signs of rust under the boots, They love to rust up and squeak and break!

Like Benzmac said, replace anything that looks worn. You don't want anything breaking so replace it before it fails. If you are going to be doing any performance driving with the car I would recommend replacing all the rubber components for safety sake. More than likely they are the original ones and with the car being 13 years old, that is a long life for rubber bushing.
