Help me create a check list for overhauling suspension
 
So I am overhauling the suspension of my car. So far I have new shock, struts, springs, control arms, RTABs, and a front sway bar. What else do I need to get? Thanks for your help.

Did you search "suspension overhaul"? I'm sure Mango did a thread on that and that there are many other threads on it.

you didn't say control arm bushings, but assume you know that.

You don't 'need' a new sway bar...depending on your mileage, you may not need springs either.

Sway bar endlinks, though, could be done...don't know that you'd feel much difference unless yours are bad.

it is a zhp sway bar so i think that is an upgrade from stock for a non zhp 328

Are you prepping the car for racing? If not, I'll just say that a sway bar isn't a wear item and the one you have is fine. Your car, as it is can leave the factory floor and go 120 mph on the Autobahn.

Can you get OEM control arm bushings? All I've seen are Meyle replacement bushings. I have a shop press and I can do them myself if I can find the right part....real OEM.com says something about "only available through value line markets" does that mean the bulk buyers at the stealership?
