Suspension Rebuild

My 2007 Cobalt LS is getting the suspension rebuilt because of a leaking strut and the infamous clunk. I have a set of SS/TC springs and struts/shocks on the way. I know I need the control arm bushings any brand better that the others and anything else I should replace while I have it apart?

If you are looking for performance you can go with moog or ottp sells baller ones (spendy though). Also sway bar bushings wouldn't hurt, again moog. Finally, your end links will probably be fused to the strut so some if those too, lol again moog!

Are the OTTP ones worth the extra money on a daily driver? Should I replace both the control arm bushing or just the back one?

On a dd just get moog if you want a bit more control. Otherwise you might as well get oe replacement for cheaper. I would replace at least the rear; both front and back if you can.

I think the moog ones are a kit on Ebay. Not sure of part numbers, I'm doing this over the winter so I don't know for sure.

They never have a kit. Just have to buy two. If you come out to mn I'll help you with the suspension!
