I replaced the bushings about 2 years ago...thinking of doing a complete suspension overhaul...any suggestions? Don't wanna break the bank either....
I may also replace the front calipers, pads and rotors while I'm at it....

You have to get under the car and inspect possible worn parts to dictate what you have to replace. Diagnose it, you can do it.

When was the last time you replaced the front struts. Granted it will probably be your rotors or something else. If all else fails to correct the problem, then I would suspect the struts.
