OK I'm looking into doing the suspension on my 90 Si. I'm trying to get my budget together and figure out exactly what I want to go with. There are plenty of "what kind of springs or shocks" threads already, and that's not really what I want to know. I'm curious as to what I should go ahead and replace as far as the other parts are concerned. Like tie rods, control arms, and stuff of that nature. Should I go ahead and replace those parts with stock replacments? Or is it really benifecial to upgrade any of those parts? (I'd like to do everything at once if I'm gonna have the car out of commision anyway) . Or should I just not worry about it untill something breaks?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

I'd go through and replace the bushings. You can do everything at once, it will make the most of your suspension mods, you get an excuse to but a new tool (a shop press, ~$120 @ summit racing), and when you put the new springs/shocks/etc everything will go together easier.

If you have it apart, and can afford it, might as well do it. These cars are old and you never know when something can go.

I'd do tie rods, ball joints, may want to look at wheel bearings too.

I was planning on doing the bushings already. I picked up a poly set from summit. I do need to pick up the press though. I love buying new tools :)

Stock replacments? Or you think I should go ahead and jump for some upgrades? I don't mind spending extra $$ if it's going to be worth it. But if it's really expensive to upgrade with only minimal gained... I'll skip it.

Either way I think you're right... I'm going to replace the tie rods, ball joints,and bearings. Just with what is the question now.
