New suspension going in bushing ?

I'm putting in a coilover suspension this week and wanted to get your opinions on what bushings should be changed. The car is a 99 and it has 92 thousand miles never changed any bushings before. I know that the front control arm bushings should be changed but thats about it. Let me know what you think. Thanks

I would also change the front control arms (this replaces the ball joints). Also, I would change the RTAB (rear trailing arm bushings) if they have a lot of movement which they most likely will.

Putting in the pss10's and I need the strut mounts my mechanic said. So the control arms and everything that comes with that and the rear trailing arm bushings, Maybe the end links. I'm just looking to get everything done right so I can have this car run like it should. Anything else?
