Well, after looking for anything else that could be broken, I found a few 'inconveniences'.

-The rear lower control arm on the right side is rusting out under the spring. Am I able to use the '93 aluminum control arms? I know where to get them if need be.

-Rear upper control arms have free-play in the bushings. Should the arm itself be replaced or are the bushings serviceable?

Many thanks
-Matt

If by 93 aluminum you mean mark viii arms, yes. But you will require spring perches. The upper arm bushings are servicable, be sure to put something between the U shape of the arm near the bushing to support it so it doesnt deform as you press the bushing out.

Ah. Well there we go. That solves the bushing issue. I'll need to look more into these spring perches.
I can help you out there. I machine spring perches from UHMW Polyethylene.

They are $150 shipped for the pair, as shown in the first picture.

The second picture shows them with the required Prothane 61709 polyurethane isolators, which I can include for an additional $30.
