Just a few basic questions:

1) Do the rubber bushings I circled need to be changed? None are cracked or damaged, but are they just spacers or do they affect how tightly the car handles?

2) Plan on replacing shocks with Bilstein shocks. Can I reuse the top hardware shown or must I acquire new parts? If so, where would one purchase said parts?

3) Is there a recommendation for a rear trailing arm rebuilder in the San Diego area? I need new rubber bushings, new bearings, and my hubs pressed back in. I know many do it themselves, but after reading some of the recent posts I'm a bit intimidated. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)
