i just done the whole frontend on the burb 2 days ago(188k on mine)......bushings and ball joints sucked!!!....need to have it alined.....and boy it drives alot better....you couldn't look around without going into the other lane or off the road....it was bad!!!!

getting the bushings out....easiest way i found was to take a drill bit and drill the rubber out to loosen them up then a good swat with a hammer...

put on new EBC vented rotors and pads....
