in the last week i put on poly front lca bushings, endlinks front+rear, sway bar bushings, shifter bushings, trailing arm bushings and front pass. ball joint
Not to get off subject, but I was thinking about this lately... Our cars are getting relitively older and will always be driven relitvely hard.

These cars are so fun and I don't plan on getting rid of it but they are expensive, not only for all the go fast parts we desire, but also for the parts that are wearing down and need replaced that normally we wouldnt think about if our cars were new. Now granted, upgrading every single part to perform better is one route but wanting an N2MB box and NEEDING wheel bearings, new bushings and gear synchros is a whole new money game we play owning these 8-9 year old cars.

I'm a victim too. Things go bad but then you can't just replace it with oem, you usually got to upgrade it while your there. Maybe one day all our cars will have every single component upgraded if they are not all crashed in ten years. Just my thoughts for the day.

True but many of us don't add miles to our cars very fast. granted the miles we add are as hard as they come... Take for instance my car, 55k on the ticker and all my front bushings are in good shape. If I replace them, it will be to upgrade.
