christian900se Definately go ahead and replace all those parts. It would suck if you had to take stuff apart again to replace those joints and strut bearings after you just took apart the whole assembly.

Saab9-3se Suspension has 156,000 KM on everything (100,000miles).

8valvegrowl I would buy new strut mounts, new strut bearings, and new tie rods ends at the very minimum.

How many miles are on the ball joints? May not hurt to do them at the same time.

I am very happy with the GS bushings (I have the older control arm, stanchion arm, and swaybar link bushings.) Can't speak to the quality of the Power Flex, but they are a reputable company AFAIK.

Help with suspension list

I did a search to no avail.

I will be getting the koni suspension kit in the near future with new bushings. Just curious to know what other parts I should replace while I am in there.

Also, anyone know if the power flex bushings are better than GS or vice versa?

Should I get new strut mounts, or sway bar links, tie rod ends etc ?
