What should I replace?

I just bought a new rack and pinion and I am planning on installing it soon. What I want to know is, what are some other suspension components that I can replace while everything is apart? I know there are bushings that can be replaced and things like that but Iím not sure what the exact names are or which ones I should do.
So if you guys could help me out by giving me a list of things that I should replace and maybe even urlís or websites to get them that would be great. Btw, I already got new inner and outer tie rods for the R&P and the boots are fine.
Thanks!

Depends on how far you wanna take it. You can do every bushing in the entire car if you want, just get the Energy Suspension full bushing kit. And a press.

Hmm I might end up doing that because my lude sounds like crap on rough roads. $230 is kinda pricey for some bushings but seems worth it.
What kind if press would I need exactly and where could I get it? Can I rent one?

Re: What should I replace?

really the only thing that needs to come off to RnR the rack is the tie rod ends. bushings are a great suspension upgrade. since your going to have to take the A-arms apart you might as well do the ball joints too.

Rent one? Maybe, if you have like a construction equip. rental place. I've rented an engine hoist from a place like that. But def not AutoZone/AAP.

Buy one; Harbor Freight or Northern Tool brand new, or Craigslist for a used one.

If I can't find a place around here that rents one then I'll probably buy one from Harbor Freight. How many tons are required to remove the ball joints and bushings? A 6, 12, 20 ton press?

Re: What should I replace?

if your going to buy one id say get the biggest one you can afford, that way someday down the line you'll have it when you need it.
