    doing springs/shocks... while im in there.....????

    is there anything else I can replace? What I had in mind was the upper ball joint and maybe the shock bracket thing on top? In an effort to save time I am thinking to remove the spring/strut as one assembly and just be ready to bolt up the new set bracket and all. anyone have any part numbers??

    You'll need new spring seat, lower insulator, dust shield, bump stop, upper spring mount, and upper shock retaining plate. Be careful with the upper spring mounts, the aftermarkets are not as good as oem. You will most likely want to get a new upper retainer plate in any case - most come out pretty rusted.

    The upper ball joint is easy to replace later so I wouldn't sweat it unless you're going to replace the upper control arm.

    I put new sway bar links in because the old bolts were really rusted.

    I replaced the strut mounts with oem after a hard time with a aftermarket mount I returned it and picked up some oem mounts and they slid right in place. I was doing a BMR spring with AGX's and figured while I was at it my sway bar links and rear mounts were rusting so I installed a Spohn sway bar set and rear sway bar mounts. I already had rear UMI lca's, strut and panhard bar. All that's left now is UMI front upper and lower arms set and sfc's then I'll finally be done.
