OTHER SUSPENSION PARTS???

So i've decided to run with eibach pro's with KYB's for a mild decent drop. i've never done suspension before and i want to do this RIGHT the first time..i was wondering should it be necessary to replace any other suspension components, such as CONTROL ARMS/BALL JOINTS, BUSHINGS, ETC..so i can go ahead and purchase these and install everything at once..or will i be good just installing the shocks/struts & springs???

with a 1.3 drop i don't believe i'll need any camber kit..correct me if wrong..

my 01' currently has 80,000 miles on it, i don't want to have to replace any other parts if i dont have to, but at the same time i'd like to know the life expectancy of these other components..when is it recommended that you change your CONTROL ARMS/BALL JOINTS, or any other suspension parts that i might have left out???

thanks again...and yes, i've 'searched'. no success..

If you can afford it, go ahead and do the bushings. I'm not sure the condition of yours but I promise it won't hurt. If the other stuff is fine, I wouldn't bother with it personally.

1.3" drop, you're good without a camber kit.

energysuspension.com do the whole polyurethane bushing setup for about $200 and includes bushings for your shocks / control arms / radius rods / end links etc etc etc ...and you will never regret installing them

Re: OTHER SUSPENSION PARTS???

so besides bushings, i'm guessing no other parts are really needing replacement...
