200,000 suspension rebuild
Hi everyone!! I'm working on a 2010 6 with 200 thousand miles. The car runs excellent, the engine and transmission never skip a beat (transmission fluid is ugly though). Anyway the suspension is all original and it ALL needs replacing.
My question to everyone is what bushings can I press in and what has to be bought as a whole piece? The front suspension needs lower control arms , upper control arms, ball joints and struts. The rear is in worse shape. It looks like I'm going to have to replace everything, It's all rusted to hell and back and pieces of rubber are sticking out of the bushings.
On rockauto my total bill is already over 500 without adding shocks,struts and rear LCA'S in. I'd like to at least press in new bushings to the rear lower control arms because they are over a 100$ a piece as a whole unit.
Has anyone ever done this complete of a overhaul ? Is it even worth it with 206,000 miles? The car is in excellent shape body wise.
