I'm with you Gary. Unless the boots are busted, balls should be fine. As for the A-arm bushings, my totalled '95 had almost 400K and there was nothing wrong with the bushings.
Do what you'd like, but I'd replace what's worn and leave the rest. I used Moog. Napa Chassis Parts are good, made by Spicer, but more expensive. Stay away from Mevotech and other house brands.
