Installing Energy Suspension HyperFlex Master Kit this weekend, what else should I do

Guys,

I just obtained a new Energy Suspension Master Bushing kit.

I've got access to a 20 ton shop press, a few DIY's and my helms manual assisting me and I will be attempting to install it all this weekend.

The car has 157k miles on it, while I have it all apart I was considering redoing all of the lower ball joints, the outter tie rods, and the upper ball joints... I was considering doing the camber kit style upper ball joints if I can find em'.

What else should I consider replacing while everything is apart?

The CV Joints are new, I was considering doing the wheel bearings but they dont seem to be in any trouble and they're not exactly cheap.

Any suggestions on what else I should do while stuff is all apart would be really appreciated... also any tips on getting the job done if you've got any would be nice.

I hear a lotta people burn their old bushings out but with access to a press this shouldn't be a problem...

Thanks fellahs!

Re: Installing Energy Suspension HyperFlex Master Kit this weekend, what else should

I plan on dropping the ground control coilvers to the lowest or closest to low as possible...

probably about a 2.5"-3" drop I'd say...

how necessary do you guys think a camber kit will be? -- if necessary which would you guys suggest for the car?

ball joint type? the LCA type?

What do you guys suggest? what brand? where to buy?

Also i'm kinda considering doing the wheel bearings at the same time now just since **** is apart.... I'm thinking timken since I've heard good things about them in the past... any suggestions on where to buy those?
