I have a 67 impala with what looks like the original rubber suspension bushings from the factory underneath. I want to completely rebuild the front and rear suspension. I have this kit I am buying but what else is needed?

I am getting this kit for performance suspension which includes:
Front End Rebuild Kits include:
  • Upper Ball Joints
  • Lower Ball Joints
  • Inner Tie Rod Ends
  • Outer Tie Rod Ends
  • Idler Arm
Graphite Impregnated Polyurethane Bushings*

  • Upper Control Arm Bushings
  • Lower Control Arm Bushings
  • Sway Bar Bushing Kit with Brackets
  • End Link Kit Inc. Bushings and Hardware
  • Polyurethane Tie Rod Boots
  • Polyurethane Ball Joint Boots

Your ball joints and tie rods will come with new boots on them so I'm not sure why you need to buy them separately.

If you are replacing all the bushings and it will be all apart I would consider replacing the springs.

Yea I planned on replacing the springs as they sag really bad.

What about the center link? I don't know much about it other than its expensive. Can you rebuild that piece? If so what is needed to rebuild it?

Tack weld those lower control arm bushings to the control arm or they will eventually work loose. ;)

Can't rebuild the centerlink. They rarely go bad so consider keeping it.

Thanks scott for the reply. I was under the impression that the center link was a wear item like the tie rod end. Guess not thanks and saves me $200!
