Just the front control arms. There are two, so far I've only replaced the one they call a wishbone which has the ball joint integrated into the arm. Next I'll replace the ones that are further forward with a separate ball joint. I'll probably not touch the anti sway bar bushings but the links I think are relatively cheap so I'll probably replace those as well.

In the rear I simply replaced the shocks and the mounts. There are a few other bushings back there but I think they're fine. I assume I'll be able to tell if they're worn after I replace everything else.
